Hi! We are a family of five (plus cat) outside Gothenburg, Sweden. We live in a house by a lake on the country. Side by side with horse farms and forests, it’s a beautiful place! By car it is 15-25 min to town depending on traffic. We also have a bus stop 1 km from our house. We love our home but also to travel and experience new cultures and countries with our family. We have never tried workaway personally but have heard many good things about it. We think that we can offer a great opportunity and experience for ”workawayers” and also a safe and fun place to stay. Our family consists of me (architect) and my husband (subsea engineer) and our three kids (7 months, 3 y and 8 y).

We do very much care for our own culture and would gladly share it with you. When we look at ourselves we see a typical swedish family but with international tethers through our work. We could show you swedish nature (we live in the middle of it) by trekking, enduro/downhill mtb, sup in the lake, boat in the lake etc. You are also welcome to accompany us to our little summerplace in idyllic Bohuslän. Other than that we are looking forward to meet and talk, sharing experiences while eating a swedish supper :)
In our home there is always a project going on! We are an active family who enjoys life in every aspect. When we are not renovating the house we are tending the garden or building something new entirely. Therefore you will mostly be able to take your pick or let the weather choose for you :) Some examples: Help with the kids (playing in the garden for example), making dinner for us all, gardening (like maintenance, bigger garden projects, fence building, terrace building etc.), renovating (painting, carpenting etc). We are not very specific in who can be able to work here but two persons at the same time at a maximum and since the guesthouse is quite small, couples or close friends are recommended. We would like to see a person/persons who is trustworthy though and who is good with children and not allergic to cats.
We live in a normal sized house and twenty meters off there is a small guest house with an amazing view. As a workawayer you can stay there while sharing bathroom with us in the house. In the guesthouse you’ll enjoy privacy and have a makeshift bed, table, chairs, tea/coffee maker. (A possibility for day job is building a small bathroom for the guesthouse). When it comes to food we always eat the dinner meal together but breakfast and lunch can be more flexible. We are open for discussion about what you like to eat and we will provide ingredients for breakfast/lunch for your own shelf in the fridge.
Since we live close to Gothenburg the workawayers here can take their pick in city entertainment. Side from that we have some nature reserves in the area, perfect for hiking or cycling or just 50 meters to our very own lake :)
