week 20: work on the house goes on

The assembly crew made of father and son (plus their Lapland Shepherd dog) continued working on our house and they're doing a good job as progress looks good.

Here are some pictures of the progress in chronological order:

This is how it looked inside after 3 days

House is getting rain cover (sateelta suojaan), our team working even on Saturday
Et voila!
some serious woodwork happened inside too, here's the upper floor
new generation of carpenters is getting ready...
the brick carrying wall in the making, next to which sauna and bathroom will be built
our wall wooden panels apparenlty are called URSUS. Let's  drink a URSUS beer to it :)

11 May: Day of house delivery

Last night we got pieces of roof (kattotuolit) delivered and today the actual elements of the house were delivered and installed. We took a day off in order to witness this little miracle coming true and had a great sunny day observing house taking its shape piece by piece. With a crazy smile on our faces we did some clearing of the riverside and collected branches into one pile. Photos will tell you more. Happy.

Windows on wheels

The very first element is the kitchen corner with window

Flying terrace door

3rd day. House covered for the weekend

Riverside and a balcony-to-be

Main entrance and living room windows
All pieces seemed to match, only Lapponia House had a delay delivering and the second day didn't go as planned. Workers couldn't do as much as they wanted and were not too happy. There was a night delivery between day 2 and 3.
