Lawn Mover

In the summer, it’s always nice to go somewhere.
In Stockholm, many of the people leaving the city go out to the archipelago at the edge of the baltic sea.
It is nice there.
Some people go boating (or sailing) and a lot just stay at their summer houses doing (usually not a lot) things like reading and having barbecues at a lawn close to their house. If they are lucky the lawn is also close to the water.
This is very popular. So popular that the prices of these summer houses limit most people from actually experience this local eden. Thus many swedes of middle to lower income travel to places like Tailand with cheep charter flights and hotels.

We wanted to hang out on a lawn, reading and doing barbecues.
But we also wanted to hang out in the city, and we thought that it would be a little bit boring to be in the same place the entire summer.
Lucky for us there is a lot of water in Stockholm. It is, after all, often referred to as “The Venice of the North”.
So we decided to build a floating lawn with a small engine so we could move it around.

Construction starts tomorrow, friday 18:th underneath “Nya Årstabron” at the “Södermalm”-side. Drop by and say hallo if you like. We are nice people and will probably play some music, do some barbecueing and have som beer.

You can download the construction drawings (with cost and weight calculations) if you want to build one yourself. The total cost is around 15000 SEK excluding the engine.
