Timo's parents were one of a number of Finnish families who settled on the Maroochydore River on the Sunshine coast in the 1930s and 40s. They came in search of whatever work paid good money, and they were prepared to work hard.
Before they'd even built their houses, they built saunas. Timo (who has his own sauna at home) says it's the only way to really feel clean after a hard day's work.
