  • Description


    We just moved in to an old farm house in the beautiful forests of Tiveden. We have a lot of ideas and projects that we want to do and we’re looking for someone willing to help us and share this special place. It’s me, my two kids and my friends living here. We also have cats, chickens, sheep and horses. We are not running any business, everything we do here is for us and for fun :)
