  • Description


    We are a family of four: Jenny 37, Jon 40, Dylan 6 and Bonnie 3. We live in a house we built ourselves next to a lake in the forest 30 min drive from Gothenburg. When we built the house we had a lot of workawayers who helped us with everything from building, painting, cooking and gardening. Once we completed the house we deleted our profile but now we feel that we miss both the company and the extra hands so here we go again!
