Finns are well known for their extravagant projects that often consist of floating saunas on a lake. Marco Casagrande is a true pioneer of this concept, but today we are looking at Saunalautta - a converted houseboat on a floating raft, rocked by the calm waters of the lake bordering the town of Joensuu in Finland.
