    Hi there, we live in a big old, wooden schoolhouse of 800 m2 with a lake below and mountins behind, in Jormvattnet, a mountainvillage in the middle/north of Sweden. Basically we are on the border to Norway.
    At the moment there are only two of us, Pexo and Maria plus a few chickens. We have friends and family visiting often, so sometimes we are more people in the house. A soap and bodycare workshop also resides here and a farmshop at some point. When we are more people living in the house, we cook togheter and have gatherings around things that concern the work of the house and what comes up in the proccess of living together. We like music, food, to socialise, and to live the life we are offered here where the sun lights up the summer sky all night long and the winters are tough and booring :)

    Worlkwise it's a lot of outdoors work mainly in summertime, woodstacking, gardening and renovations takes place.
    Many possibilities to walk in the forrest and in season (Aug-Sept) pick berries or mushrooms. Fishing is big up here. Moose and raindeer, even bear is not uncommonly seen. Wintertime can be grim and isolated with lots of snow, barrels of wood to haul and cold weather. But also cosy and calm with a live fire in the livingroom, sauna in the basement and lots of indoorsspace. Different workshops around the house allows for opportunity to be creative if one is interested. Skiing and other winteractivities is best in March and April when the light is coming back.

    If interested, hit the mailbox.

    This is quite far north and takes atleast a full day to reach from Stockholm. Coming in from Trondheim, Norway is also a viable option.
