    Description

    Hi!

    Our names are Joseph and Melina and we live in a wonderful old school house on the countryside in Skåne, Sweden. I (Joseph) have been renovating this house for three years now, we have been living here two year and we love it.

    I work as a production menagerie producing construction materials. I also like everything technical and always have a side project going on. Melina studies theoretical philosophy at uni and likes to grow food in the vegetable garden. We both enjoy hiking on the many hiking trails around the area.

    There are always many thing to do and learn when renovating a house so no matter how much experience you have before there will be something interesting to do.

    Also, please take note that we are both vegans and keep a vegan house. So no non vegan food during your stay with us. Thanks :)

    Enjoy your day!
    /Joseph and Melina

    I usually say I expect around 20-25 hours work a week. I give accommodation and all food except for snacks/candy.

    I keep a vegan house so no animalbased foods at home.

    Lund and Malmö are two close by cities that are very different from each other and very nice in there own way. Lund being an academic university town and Malmö very alternative and multicultural.

    Skåneleden is a network of really nice hiking trails with campsites provided every 14-20 km. One of the trails passes just a few hundered meters from our home.
