Here is our room in a box. It is to go on tours with our member Frank Eld, Finnish Log Construction Specialist, who made this model in his workshop. This is a scale model, where 1 inch equals 1 foot.
The type of log construction used in Finnish houses made it possible to live in warm, durable homes where the home fire, "kotiliesi", centered and supported all of the household functions. The room depicts a farmstead consisting of a smoke-sauna, a farmhouse, and a path.
