Grill houses have appeared in Finland, where the harsh climate does not allow enjoying all the benefits of outdoor recreation. Such Finnish houses or barbecue gazebos have several features:
- They are designed for year-round use, closed, light enters only through windows, which can occupy a large area. Heating in cold weather will provide the hearth, which necessarily occupies a central place, becomes the main detail of the house;
- The traditional shape should resemble the igloo that was built in Lapland. Six or eight corners is a standard grill house;
- The roof is reliable, domed, capable of withstanding the weight of the snow cover. A chimney is arranged for the hearth. Flexible shingles are most often used as roofing material;
- Finnish houses are built exclusively from wood.
The area of the grill house is usually small – from six to ten square meters. The height in the center of the domed roof does not exceed three meters, and even less at the walls. This is quite enough to get together in a company of eight to ten people and even more. A place for such a grill house can be found even in a small area..
As for the interior of the grill house, it can be very different. Traditionally, wooden walls are not hidden by anything; the gazebo looks like an ordinary relaxation room in a bath or sauna. There are benches along the entire perimeter of the Finnish house to accommodate as many guests as possible, the table can be located directly around the metal hearth, but there may be other options. Home coziness and comfort will be added by pillows, soft bedding, textiles on the windows.
Most often, Finnish houses are bought. There is a barbecue gazebo with an area of seven square meters of about 150 thousand rubles. However, there will be expenses for transportation, arrangement of the foundation – usually it is piled. If specialists are going to assemble the house – again expenses. As a result, about 100 thousand rubles can be added to the price of a barbecue gazebo, if you do not do the assembly and foundation with your own hands.
Of course, you can build a grill house yourself, having the skills in the construction of wooden structures. If you wish, you can simplify the task by making the grill house square or rectangular. In any case, the building should provide an opportunity to get together in a pleasant company behind a living hearth in any weather.
