    Description

    From APRIL we would love to host a couple that, has knowledge, big interest in woodwork, carpentry, buildning, renovating. We are plannng to build a gym, and make our work shop bigger. We need to build new doors in wood for the barn, the garage etc ...

    Apart from that we are looking for you who loves to:
    - share your life, thoughts, ideas, culture and experiences
    - hang out with different kind of persons
    - be part of something bigger, making a difference
    - go for walks, play games both traditional as video/computer, talk and discuss, work hard and laugh

    We are a big, open-minded, down-to-earth, crazy, alternative, energetic, spontaneous, hard-working, honest and caring family that lives in an old farmhouse. We don't have much land, but we have some sheep, 4 horses and 5 dogs.

    We run our own business, having the office at home. We also run a dog training center, giving classes to people with their dogs 7 days a week, from beginners to professionals, agility and obedience.

    The family consist of grandparents Britt and Per, my husband Arne and me Christin, my 2 daughters Emelie 17 and Elsa 16, (born in Spain) Ebbe 6, Paolo 22 and Alex 17 that stay with us since we are "foster-home/half-way home" for adults/teenagers. That means an teenager/adult who has or had drugproblems or mental issues, criminal background, tough childhood.

    Since Christin lived many years in Spain and Emelie & Elsa were born there, we speak both Swedish and Spanish at home so that the girls will keep up their mother-tongue.

    We live outside a small village in between two bigger towns. Right outside the house is a bike road and the bus passes every hour both directions. It's easy to move and go places. We are close to Denmark as well.

    SPANISH speaking is an extra plus!

    Looking forward to meet you :)
