Our cabin blog

I’m not sure whether I’ve mentioned this here, but anyhow, we bought a summer cabin from Karjalohja, around 75 kilometers west from our home.

This move is a bit contradictory to my dream of being a digital nomad someday, but it could act as a basecamp, too. Or then I’m just making excuses. Anyhow, kids just love the place, and I’ve found surprising amount of serenity there. In that sense it has been money well spent.

On the other hand, there is a boatload of stuff to do. Everything on the lot, except a few big pine trees, and oaks, maples, and birches will need to go. Including the current cabin and the shed. We’ve already cut down several dozen trees, junked two tractor trailers full of stuff, and burned a big pile of trash wood. The talks have been started with an architect to get the required permits — the timescale is now like five years, so we are not in a hurry.

We’ve started a new blog about the cabin, only in Finnish. If you’re interested in the development, check puhettahuvilasta.fi.
