Hardware Store

I really am a fan of my local Rautia store. Call me a freak but I just bought most of my Christmas presents from there. I have actually been visiting this store for decades now. It has actually always been there and I know that the fourth manager is running the show nowadays. I know all the staff from years ago. Some of them still tend to drop by and have actually a coffee at my place. I am living quite close by the store and usually all the goods I buy from Rautia are delivered to my estate door – not out of an order I have actually made, but from being kind and knowing your finest customers.

I renovate apartmets for living. I buy total wreck apartments and find great joy in fixing them and at the same time keeping up along with the renovation (in Finnish: remontti) trends. Renovating an apartment is highly therapeutical. You can first think, think and think. Then when you get to the bottom of it you can start slowly scraping things down, crushing walls, ripping floors and really just wrecking the place. Afterwards you can get a bit emotional and start to renovate – giving it a brand-new life.

What I love about Rautia is that they live along with me all of these moments. I can get tools and materials for all phases from one store.

It usually takes around three to four months per apartment for it to really work. I average on 75k€ per apartment so it is financially quite profitable as well. Of course, I don’t have actually working hours, sick leaves, pension funds or anything like that. All I have actually is my two hands, two feet, one head and the apartment.

Most of my inspiration and ”trend smelling” I do at the fares or at the local Rautia. Seeing brand-new things, talking to experts and trying things by hand gives you a good hint of whether it will work or not. Renovation is also a sort of a game where you don’t get too numerous redos – but moreover you have actually to get it right the first or second time. If you redo a task too numerous times, it will show. Or then it’s just my love for the sport.
