Hello. Just want to say that right now my house is full and I cannot receive more workawayers. Kind regards, Åsa
Three years ago me and my daughter, who is now 14, moved into our dream place just outside Uppsala, 100 km north of Stockholm. The house is a classical red wooden house with an old barn and a small cottage. I am doing a lot of renovation work myself, and I am grateful for help from handy volonteers. My priority is to renovate the small, cosy cottage, where I plan to establish a B&B in the near future. A dream for the future would be to keep hens as well.
DIY and building projects
Creating/ Cooking family meals
Help around the house
I speak English and Spanish. I have lived several years in Chile and like to receive visitors from Latin America. It would also be great to receive French speaking people, as we would like to pracise our French.
I am exploring life in the countryside and want to learn more about building preservation and small scale farming. I am open to your advice and experience.
There are lots of smaller and bigger chores to be carried out. I need help with gardening as well as with renovation work: sanding, painting, carpenting, etc.

You will stay in my house in a double bed (if you are a couple) or in a single room, and you will share the bathroom with me and my daughter. There is also a guest toilet. We will cook and eat together, hopefully in the garden, when the weather permits.
My place is located 25 km north of Uppsala city centre, which you reach by a 15 minute-trainride. Buses and trains arrive here every 30 minutes. There is a food store one kilometer from the house. I can lend you bikes.
Uppsala is an old university city with beautiful areas surrounding the cathedral from 1435, the castle from 1567 and the botanical garden. Stockholm is one hour away by train. The surroundings provide rich oppotunities for outdoor life, biking, swimming and trekking.
