The dream of a home

May 23, 2016 Koivisto 0 Comments

We got the possibility to move from the city to the countryside, to an old farm, at the beginning of the year 2016. We needed first time to think, if this would be the way we want to live. We decided to say yes and moved here at the end of April. Our new home is located in Karkkila, which is about 60 kilometers from the capital of Finland, Helsinki. In a way the location is quite perfect. We get the chance to live close by the nature and enjoy the beauty its offering and yet we're still not so far away from the city life.

The farm was used to belong to the grandparents of Susanna. They have build the main building at 1959, but the whole farm was excisting already the late 1800's. Because of the countless stories and the history, the place has its own charm.
Before we can really call the old farm home, we want to make it look like us. The renovation will be done with low budget and lot of time investment from us. Tobi's carpenter skills and the German determined spirit will be a big part of it. Warmly welcome to follow our renovation project and the life around it!
