Wooden house?
I'm surprised that it survives so many harsh winters.

@Curly: Yes, wooden house. In Finland there are loads of houses made of wood and in Turku there are some that are more than 200 years old.

I guess wood is naturally warm, and is better than bricks in such a cold place

@CElliottUK: I've lived my whole life in a houses that have not been made of wood but always I have wanted to live in one of those wooden wonders. :)
