About Marko Makimartti


My name is Marko.

My origin is in Lapland. Currently I live in Äänekoski, central Finland.

I'm a entreprenour and I do construction management for living, consentrating mainly big industrial projects globally. My work has taken me and my family to several countries and we've been living many years abroad; China, Uruguay and Poland.

Marko Makimartti purchased this house in 2013

Why Marko Makimartti chose Kemijärvi

Since my origin is in Lapland, I wanted to have my own place for leisure and relaxing out of the hectic work. The house was built by me during years 2012-2013. Pyhä has became very dear place for me during the years. At Pyhä I love it's quietness and bueaty at all seasons. Pyhä also has very special music events like Pyhä unplugged-festival. You can also enjoy midnight sun during summer and nordic lights during winter time. Since I'm able to spend only few time at the house, I want to share this beautiful house for others usage too.

What makes this house unique

Building is made of massive wooden logs from Lapland, wood is called "aihki-log". It is one piece massive log and oldest trees are over 400 years. Building is designed by architect following wishes of the building owner. Materials are selected carefully to last.

There are two similar houses at the plot, second house belongs to my mother. Only difference is the decoration and interior colours. If you are bigger group (up to 16 people) you may have two houses side by side.

Cross country ski track leaves only one hundred meter from the house.

Reindeers offen visit at the house backyard and surroundings.
