  • Description


    Hi, We are a small family of three that lives in Dalarna.
    My name is Mikaela and my partners name is Tobias and we have a daughter that is 15 months old and I am also pregnant with our second child which is due in September. We also have a dog.
    We bought the house about 15 months ago and we would like som help with some renovation and gardening. That will involve some painting, organizing, som yard work, walk the dog etc.

    Around the house we have forest, seven miniature horses on the other side of the street. More horses and cows around and still only a ten minute bike ride from the city.

    We are really excited to meet new people and to share our home.
    Looking forward to hear from you :)
