We are family of 4. Me (Esther) Jakob my husband and our two kids Emilia (8) and Jökull (4). We live in a very small town in the westfjords of Iceland called Patreksfjörður. The town has only about 700 people living in it. Patreksfjordur is part of Vesturbyggð. Vesturbyggð consists of Patreksfjörður, Tálknafjörður, Bíldudalur and Barðarströnd. Those four places have about 1200 people. people work around fish and farming. But with this isolation you are very near the nature and the mountains.
We are looking for someone to help with the kids and around the house. Recently we decided to renovate part of our house. So if you know your way around carpentry, plumbing and etc you'll fit right in. You are very close to the nature, there are high mountains all around here, so if you like hiking and being in nature this place is right for you. We also have a german shephard dog and a cat that can keep company during the day. I am working as an electrician from 8 to 16 and Jakob is working as an marine engineer in a hydro powerplant nearby. the kids are in school during the day.
