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.

The new home will be located on a beautiful 5800 m2 property, right next to water. The design is inspired by mid-century modern buildings, a few of our favourite 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. As the design finalises, we will make sure to share more.

At the moment, we are preparing to move out from our current home, finalising the designs and entering to the process of getting all necessary permissions in place. Check out the very latest posts to find out more!
