The house was owned in 1756 by Morin. In 1800 it belonged to the bourgeois Anders Berglund, who also had a small field. Olof C. Boje, the town notary, also lived in the house, but had no property.

Fire insurance

The house was insured against fire in 1863 by the workman F. Rosten. There were three buildings on the plot. There was a building on Kiviniemenkatu, one wing of which followed the northern boundary of the plot. Extending it on the northern boundary was another small building. The third building was on the eastern boundary. The building at the side of the street was of log construction, unpainted, with a pitched roof, recently built and in good condition. The roof was boarded. There were two halls, two chambers, a baker’s pantry, a kitchen and two hallways. There were four tiled stoves, a baking oven and a kitchen stove. The outbuilding, an extension of the courtyard wing, comprised a dormitory with an attic. The storeroom was of log construction, recently built, unboarded and unpainted. The outbuilding was old and in poor condition. It was unplanked and unpainted. The building contained a barn, a barn and a stable and a chalk shed. The roof was made of boards. In addition, the driveway of the property was insured.

Modification drafts

A modification drawing of the plot’s buildings by Arvi Tuomokoski dates from 1905. The residential building had four chambers in a row on the roof side. There were two apartments. The second consisted of two large chambers and one small chamber on the roof side, as well as a kitchen in the porch extension on the courtyard side. New entrance parts were made on both sides of the kitchen. On the courtyard side there is a separate dwelling which included a bake house, one of the roof side chambers and a narrower chamber on the other side of the bake house. A cold storage room was an extension of this. There is a small porch in front of the dwelling. The outbuilding had three log rooms and a toilet block was added to the side. The street façade of the dwelling is described as clapboarded and the T-window panelling as Neo-Renaissance. The gateway is enclosed at the bottom and latticed at the top. Adjacent is a separate enclosed access door. The upper timber of the gate has a lattice motif.

In 1996, a sauna was planned for the outbuilding.
