We are a family of three, myself, my husband, and our son (16). We have two building projects, one project is close to Stockholm-our main family home, the other is our Summerhouse in the Stockholm archipelago. We need help with small building tasks and help to maintain the garden. Both places are in great locations. The mainland house is in between Stockholm Arlanda Airport and Stockholm City Center. The island house in the archipelago is easy to reach with a free ferry from the mainland (Vaxholm). The island is called Rindö.
While you are staying with us, you can stay/help at both places, depending where we need help, your skills and where you want to be :-) Our current prioroties are gardening, carpentry, plumbing and outdoor tiling.

You will have your own little house with private bathroom. At the Stockholm house you will have a lovely little cottage with a wonderful outside place. On the island you will have a cosy, comfortable, cottage, with amazing garden and a traditional Finnish sauna.
Of course, we provide food and sticking to the 25-hours working week. The volunteering hours can be agreed on and is very flexible.
Our family home is perfect to visit Stockholm city. It takes 10 minutes by train to get to the city centre, by bike around 30 minutes.
In the summer months, the island is a nice place to go swimming, fishing, cycling, kayaking, hiking, relaxing. There is a pizzeria and a shop on the island. Lots of nature and wildlife: deer, badgers, foxes seen in the garden.
We like to have a friendly win-win situation, and our workaways are supposed to have a good time here : )
