  • Description


    Hi there! Im living in a little house in a pretty small village, called Stråtjära, it's located a little
    bit north of Sweden close to Söderhamn. I got a dog and 4 cats, small garden and forest around.

    Welcome to share daily life in the forest...with all that comes along. Sometimes I got different projects going on and around the house or in the village or I do work somewhere else during the days. There will be occasions when I leave the house for some days and need someone to watch over my animals and place when I'm gone.

    Some of my close friends lives in a comunity nearby and from time to time we arange things to happend and help eachother with different tasks. Usually my workawayers gets a chanse to spend some time at the comunity and whatever is going on at the moment.

    I like when things is happening and to be creative but also to have relaxing fun time with friends ...
    So If you are interested to come, im looking for people that can take inisiatives on there own and be able to look after them selfs and things. And make sure you ok to work on your own, if I'm not around.
    I used to travell a lot before i got stuck in the forest ;) im easy going and open minded!
    Looking forward to hear from you guys!
