Jani Harju

I have always been fascinated with boats and the possibility of living in a floating home. In 2018, I decided to create a small version of a floating home. Thanks to the positive attitude and helpfulness of the city of Porvoo, a suitable place for the floating cottages was found on the Porvoo river.

I began to plan the floating cottages during January of 2019. My goal was to have the first floating cottage built and ready in May, but building project budgets and timetables tend to stretch. This was also the case with the floating cottage project. After a few tough months of building, I finally had the pleasure of opening the first floating cottage for rent. I had a few interesting name versions for the cottage but I decided to name it after my daughter Alma. The next stage will be the building of my second floating cottage, Willhelmina.

I hope there are more people out there in the world who enjoy floating homes.

You are welcome to come and visit and stay at the floating cottage Alma!
