  • Description


    The focus for now is renovating a small cottage near beach and forest in Fjellerup strand about 45 minutes from Aarhus. Where we have bought a smaller wellfunctioning house that needs to brought up to date, so there is some paint-work, and maybe some carpentry work. It's the house you see in the pictueres.

    It is a very beautiful area with about 800 meters to the beach and 400 meters to a great forest, so there is a lot of nature around but not so much city-life.

    We will help each other with the things that needs to be fixed. If you have skills with tools we will probably put in a few bigger windows, but else there is a lot of indoor paint work.

    Our family is two adults and four children (7, 10, 10 and 13) who loves our house and garden, travelling and meeting people. I work as a highschool/college teacher, writer and national advisor for the ministry of education. Dorte is a sign language interpreter.
