Wooden house idyl - Puutaloidylli


And no, I haven't been at countryside ;-) but a few goats would be nice in the photo anyway. These houses are not far from downtown, only some 500 m, just walk over the bridge and you are by the City Library and the Theatre. In houses there are rental* apartments of the City of Oulu. Some of them are atelier apartments for artists and the rest are homes of ordinary (?) people.
*still are, but first suggestions to sell them to private market are made and inhabitants have started to fight on behalf of their homes.

Ei, en ole ollut maaseudulla ;-) vaikka pari vuohta kyllä piristäisi kuvaa entisestään. Nämä talot eivät ole kovin kaukana keskustasta, vain n. 500 m, kävely sillan yli ja olet kirjaston ja teatterin luona. Taloissa on kaupungin vuokra-asuntoja*. Osa on kunnostettu ateljeeasunnoiksi taiteilijoille ja osassa asuu tavallisia (?) ihmisiä.
*toistaiseksi, ensimäiset ehdotukset asuntojen myymisestä yksityisille markkinoille on jo tehty, ja asukkaat ovat aloittaneet taistelun kotiensa puolesta.
