I'm a professional builder. My profession is to repair old wooden structures with traditional metodes and materials. Toys, furniture, windows and the rest of the house. I'm 46 and married. I studied in 1989-92. I have a smal company, Tiny-e.
My wife worked earlier on ICU but now on KNF. We have 7 Doro, 4 cats and 2 Standard bred. We live in a log house dated back to 1920ish. The nearest bigger place, 50km, has 200,000 inhabitants and is among the 6 biggest cities in Finland. Last winter was very long, 7-8 months and the coldest days ~-32C. We have a central heating system in the house and we heat up with firewood.
My dogs as co-worker. They are often the not-so-silent budys but they are the most loyal partners you can get. Just an example. If you haven't eaten your bread and you have to go to the shower, toilet, barn etc. for a time period that is longer than just a moment, I can promise you the bread isn't there anymore when I come back. I will have 7 budys looking at each other. If they could speak they would say: "Who. Me?".
