Green house - hetken englanniksi
I have recently (to my great surprise and joy!) had also non-Finnish people visiting my blog. I thought it would maybe be nice to write a short summary about my blog for you in English.
About two years ago I decided to realise a life long dream of having my very own summer house. At the time I was living in a one room apartment in the city and wanted a place to go to when in need of more space and some fresh air. I like to renovate and decorate, so it was obvious I wanted the house to be old and shabby. I especially admired the modest and practical wooden houses built in the 1940´s and 50´s after the war. After having looked into it, I found out that it would be possible for me to buy an old house situated about a two-hour drive from Helsinki, the city where I lived in. So I ended up offering to buy a beautiful green house by a field in the countryside, built in 1948.
The house has four rooms; kitchen, livingroom and guest bedroom downstairs, and another bedroom upstairs. There is electricity, but no running water. The house came with some forest and a yard with plum and apple trees. In the summertime you can see deer in the field nearby, last summer I watched a big elk walk majestically by in the night time.
This blog is a photo diary about the house. I usually write a few words about what has been going on in the countryside lately; renovating, latest thrift store finds, furniture moving around, and so on. Sometimes, if I haven´t visited the house in a long time, I might post pictures about the apartment in the city also. The name of the blog "Vihreä talo" simply translates to "Green house".
