Saunaperinteitä

The entrance to the smoke sauna door. The door handle is a moose antler. Note the birch whisk (vihta) hanging on the wall, with which to smote oneself! In the heat of the sauna, the vihta produces a wonderful herbal smell.

Pihapiirin ulkopuolelle jäänyt saunarakennus aiottiin purkaa pois, mutta päätettiinkin kunnostaa. Kaksi alinta hirsikerrosta piti uusia. Lahonnut sisäpanelointi purettiin. Muhkeat lauteet veisti Mikko. Tuikkukruunu antaa saunaan tunnelmallisen valon.
