Another throwback Thursday post!
As our photovoltaic system is back up and producing effectively after a Finnish winter break, I thought let's take a little picture journey back to July 2016 when the PV system was installed!
Our fresh water pipe enters the house sideways, which means we have a small hut attached to the house, in which the water pipes comes in from below ground and enter the house through the wall. This is pretty practical in a Rintamamiestalo.
As the header says, our house has two beautiful, old fireplaces, and finally both of them are operational!
The winter has arrived, and even though this is not the High North of Westerors it does get cold in here too. Well, we are in latitude 61°, which is not very high up in Finland but looking at it globally it very much is! We get the winters the latitude suggests: cold, snowy, long.
One of our early decisions when we started discussing moving to Finland was that we want to strive towards energy autonomy.
