    Description

    Hi, We are a small family of four that lives in Dalarna.
    My name is Mikaela and my partners name is Tobias and we have a daughter that is two years old and a son that’s almost five months old. We also have a dog and eight chickens.
    We bought the house about two years ago and we would like som help with some renovation and gardening. Right now we are renovating the basement and building an apartment down there. We also have a plan to build a greenhouse from old windows. So if you have any building experience it would be great.

    Some other work would involve some painting, organizing, som yard work, walk the dog, take care of the chickens 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. Only 15 minutes to the ski mountain -downhill and cross country.

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