A glimpse of inspiring projects, hard work and simple life in the North Karelian countryside and Kymenlaakso.
The foundation and building site of the little round house - an eco building project of our friends Mick and Marja.
More about the project at http://pikkuroundhouse.blogspot.fi/. You can also find them through Workaway, HelpX and Poosh, in case you are interested in volunteering.
Learning by doing. Carpenter Mick and Pirate J putting together the beam structure for the foundation. Mick and Marja's three year-old son Leo participates.
In this building project everything is done from scratch. Pirate J and I are peeling trees that will later be used as building material.
Returning home for supper through one of the most beautiful birch forests.
Just love chickens.
