15.08.2008
9AM. Ready to install a new (glass)facade. After the first try, we find out that the glass plate (120 kg) was delivered in wrong position and needs to be taken back outside and turned around. It's going to be a long day but all facades have to be ready and shut by night.


11.08.2008
Meet Markku. With this pro help the renovation starts up fast. First we strip the interior, then do the facades. Two doors needs to be replaced.


15.07.2008
A small-scale model of the small shop. After finishing with the planning it's time to face the bureaucracy of Helsinki city. We are lucky and get a permission to start the renovation in just two weeks.

After cleaning the facades it's time to start planning. We manage to get in touch with the original architect who drew the building and get a lot of information and suggestions on how to proceed.
