Our 40’s house is located on a gradually sloping plot. The yard was largely unkempt lawn when we bought the house about 11 years ago. These pictures are from our terrace that is built on the south side of the house. I wanted the terrace to be big enough to accommodate many guests, so we built it to the width of the old part of the house and all the way to the border (4,5 x 8,5 m).

The switched the dining room’s window into a double-door to make it easier to access the terrace from the inside. A grand fireplace was made next to the seating area. Grilling and cooking takes place on a flat rock that was covered with slates.

These pictures were taken a few years ago and the furniture has since been renewed. Our garden and terrace will be presented on Liv-channel in the “Finland’s Most Beautiful Garden” –program on May 20th. Remember to watch and vote.
