La Casa De Kõivistik

By January 8, 2013 Life, Photos


Had a nice christmas vacation… Latvia->estonia->finland. Since i’m home like once per year, i figured that i should take some photos so i wont forget how it looks like :D

Unfortunately i had my camera in the repairs so i had to use my ancient nikon D40 that i had left for my parents when i upgraded a few years ago… so i didnt really bother doing it that properly… so some images are a bit funky ;)


From left to right its the main house, sauna/mom’s massage parlor, workshop and wood shed

lots of organic food in summer :)

this one used to be my old room befor it got repurposed as sewing/laundry room, heres how it looked when i was still there:

mostly frosen fresh wild strawberry jam and a bit of blueberries

all the buildings are heated by wood… oldschool :D

And the workshop/garage… it took some heavy damage from fire a few years back so the insides still need a lot of work.

some examples of its use from last christmas:

nd the sauna/mom’s massage parlor

downstairs has been looking like this for the past 25 years or so… but theres some rumors of it getting fixed up as a waiting room for the clients.

the photo doesnt really do any justice for it since the room is actually very nice and cozy

sauna dressing room

shower

nd sauna itself

Home-made sauna furnace built from old truck brake drums and sheet metal.. and a diy boiler system (water gets heated by the sauna furnace itself.. no electricity or bumps, just pipes, water and heat)
