  • Beschreibung


    We are a German couple, 55 and 60 years old, with a dog and a cat.
    We have been living here since 2017 near Sandviken in the Gävle area on the edge of the Färnebofjärden nature park on the Nedre Dalälven and after several moves across Europe we finally feel at home.
    Our home consists of 5 hectares of land with 2 houses, a barn, a sauna house, an earth cellar and a pool as well as our own spring with forest.
    The nearest neighbours are about 900 m away. Other neighbours such as foxes have their den less than 100 m in sight of us. Deer and elk visit us regularly as well as hares, swans and cranes. We live very close to nature and pay attention to our "neighbours".
    Thomas works as a truck driver and I am mostly at home.
    We have many ideas and some have already been implemented, such as: the repair of the pool, for which a pool deck for sunbathing and barbecuing is now in the pipeline.
    Furthermore, we want to build a greenhouse, for which the foundation is already done.
    Our garden is enclosed with a branch fence for everything that crawls and flies - it also needs filling up from time to time.
    We have built 3 beds in the garden so far, which are also being worked on.
    Our next big projection now will be a solar farm, for which we will build the racks for the solar cells ourselves.
    Our guest house is already finished - and a studio to go with it - a small flat to live in while you are here - with its own bathroom and kitchen.
    What we expect:
    5 hours a day working on our projects.

    DIY and construction work


    Craft work

    Our biggest project in 2023 is a solar farm that will require a lot of wood building.
    Then a greenhouse where the ground is already done - for the rest we want to use recycled material and natural stone. So if you have experience with timber construction and walls that would be an advantage.
    Then we also want to build a terrace in front of our house.
    The garden should be sown and maintained.
    On the front part of the plot we want to build a flower garden
    and much more.....
    We have more ideas than we can implement. But with your help we are sure that we can do it - step by step!

There is a private terrace for the summer and for smokers. There is also a fireplace for the winter - wood can be found in front of the entrance. Everything for breakfast is in the fridge and there is warm food for everyone in the house.

    We have a beautiful bathing spot nearby in Färnebofjärden Nature Park. There are many activities on offer in the nature park such as: fishing, guided tours or kayaking. The nearest bus stop is about 1km away. We also offer a quad to go to the nearest lake, and we also have bicycles. We expect you to enjoy what you do with us, so the 5 hours of work a day can be freely chosen - we have enough projects where you can tackle :-)
