The Hakkri plot belonged to Gabriel Laihander in 1756. In 1800, the plot belonged to the civil guard Bertil Grönlund, who was considered poor.

Modification drafts

The modification drawing of the buildings on the plot dates from 1886. There were three buildings on the site: a dwelling house on the eastern boundary of the site, close to the river, a small residential building in the middle of the courtyard, and an outbuilding on the western boundary of the site. The residential building on the eastern boundary had a central room with a large baking oven. There were fairly large rooms on either side of the barn. In front of the entrance was a boarded, shed-roofed porch. The smaller dwelling had two separate rooms, each with its own entrance and a small porch in front of it. The outbuilding had a barn and a shed. The dwellings had wide horizontal planking and six-paned windows with classical mouldings. The outbuilding also had horizontal boarding. The barn had slanted windows.

In 1893, the intention was to build a shed with a pent roof on the riverside end of the residential building on the eastern boundary of the plot. In 1898, major alterations were planned. The plan was to combine the two existing residential buildings and to build a new outbuilding to replace the old one. The extension to the existing house on the eastern boundary would include a sauna, a room and a hallway. A room, a small chamber and a hallway would be added to the end of the building on the river, forming a corner with the building on the eastern boundary. The outbuilding would be made of stone and would include a stable, barn, latrine, barn and storeroom. John Fred. Lindegren’s drawing shows the façade of the dwelling to be vertically boarded and the windows to be double-hung. They are surrounded by classical mouldings. The exterior is conceived as a plastered building. The plan was never implemented.

In 1908, Arvi Leikari had planned the changes. The plan was to extend the residential building along the river with a wing on the courtyard side, which would include a living room, kitchen and entrance hall. In addition, one new kitchen stove would be added to the existing part of the building. This addition was also not implemented. A new entrance, a new kitchen stove and a tiled stove would be added to the residential building on the eastern boundary of the site. The layout would be changed to provide more apartments. The old, wooden outbuilding would be replaced by another larger brick building.

In 1932, plans were made to extend the riverside building, consisting of a hall, a living room and a small kitchen, from the kitchen to the river side.

In 1956 it was the turn of the brick outbuilding on the western boundary of the plot. A sauna and a garage were added to the building. A latrine and a couple of storage parts were left.

The modification drawing for the residential building on the eastern boundary of the Hakkri plot dates from 1962. The building was reduced in size by demolishing the part at the river side end that comprised the room, hall and porch. The remaining part was renovated into apartments with two rooms, a kitchen and a room. In front of both entrances is a small porch with a pulpit roof. Wood heating was retained, but the apartments were fitted with electric stoves. No piped water was installed in the apartments. The lining of the building is shown as a narrow horizontal plinth. There is very narrow moulding around the T-pane windows.

In 1963, changes were again made. The larger apartment in the building, which had been renovated a couple of years earlier, was taken over by the auction house. The one-room apartment, on the other hand, remained in residential use. A sauna, boiler room, toilet and garage were added to the outbuilding on the western boundary of the site. Two wooden shelters were left in the building.

In 1980, an extension was made to the porch of the riverside building to provide a toilet.
