Joukojärven pirtti

Joukojärven pirtti has been moved from Timpinvaara, from the main building of Kaikkola farm. The building was built in the early 1890s in Timpinvaara and has been provided with a baking oven and a newer kitchen in recent years. The refrigerator can be powered by electricity or LPG. Whilst the stove is powered by LPG.

The Joukojärvi holiday homes still have traces of their past, such as old benches and the original tables. Looking out the windows, one will also notice the Russian-era stripes in the glass. Where possible, recycled material has been preferred in the construction and decoration. The baking ovens of both cabins have been demolished from previous users and assembled in new locations.

Riihelä

Riihelä was built as a holiday home from an old smokehouse in the early 1970s. Originally only 30 square meters in size, it received a basic refurbishment in the 2000s. During the preparations for the establishment of the Hossa National Park, the idea of ​​extending and refurbishing the cottage arose. A suitable extension section was found in Päijät-Häme in winter 2017. The drying barn theme was continued and an old smokehouse was moved to the shore of Lake Joukojärvi as an extension to Riihelä. At the same time, the original part of the cabin was renovated.

The stove is powered by LPG, whilst the refrigerator and freezer are electrically operated. The cottage has a solar power system to provide electricity 24 hours a day. The Victron inverter delivers instantaneous power of 5 kW and the battery capacity is sufficient for normal use in the darkest periods. A Lister generator is used during the winter months to charge the batteries.
