  • Description


    Right now I am looking for someone to house- and pet sit when I am away - 2 horses, some ducks and 2 cats - easy job. Other duties working here involve farm duties and renovation. Help can vary and if you have renovations skills it is a big plus but not crucial. Minimum stay 2 weeks, prefer longer stays.

    I bought this farm last year and I am now transforming it into a newly renovated two floor house, a big barn for having parties and gatherings and a place for different kinds of animals. I am creating a community and a place where people can live, meet and hang around in the countryside just outside of Eksjö in Sweden, 2,5 hrs by train from Stockholm. The surroundings are very nice and there is a lake just nearby. There are horses, cats and ducks living here to.

    I would like some help with:
    Renovating the house - skills and no skills
    Looking after the animals - no skills needed
    Differents chores done at a farm

    If you have any of these skills, don´t hesitate to contact me. My rating is perhaps a little low because of difficulty replying to all the requests soon enough. I am sorry for late replies but I will try to reply everyone eventually!

    Building a community will have pretty much the same values anywhere in the world but we can add the freedom of moving freely in the forests and how we care for the animals as family members.

  • Accommodation


    Staying together in a two floor house, simple accommodation since the house is under renovation. Simple but it will feel like a home and I always try to make us all feel a little privacy.

    What else ...

    Stockholm City offers everything you might want! There are buses to the city center and there is a possibility to have a lift every now and then when I go to work to. The area around the house is magnificent with lakes, sea, forest and beautiful fields.
