Project Kaislaranta

Kaislaranta (eng. “Reedy Shore”) is our biggest project so far. In short, we are building a new home. It all started when Pekka, who had just cut off one of his fingers while renovating our previous home, wanted to go and see a piece of property he had found online. Feeling terrible about the recent accident, Minna simply could not say no. Little did we know at the time, but that was for us what they call the “point of no return”. We were hooked.

After 2.5 years of waiting, we finally have a permission to build and things are moving. The old house has been torn down in January 2023, and groundwork is now well along the way. If all goes well probably in a week they will start setting the foundation for the house. Check out the latest posts to find out more!

The new home will be located on a beautiful 6200 m2 property, right next to water. The house design is inspired by mid-century modern buildings, a few of our favorite examples being the Invermark House in South Africa and the Ahm House in England. The basic structure will be post and beam. Big windows will complement the wood and brick elements.
