We are back in the house, after a two year break!
In winter 2020 we will get electricity from the grid: from then we're not all-off-grid anymore (mixed feelings about that!). But that means we can do a lot of fun stuff we were limited on before. Power tools, here we come!
Upcoming projects: a total make-over of the kitchen, painting the house and outhouse, total make-over of the tool-shed, and a gym in the outhouse.
Welcome to our house in the forest. Live together with our little family in a moderate fashion and by deep-rooted Do-It-Yourself-philosophy.
Our farm is a partly self-supplying house on a half hectare on the country-side of Närke. Water, heat and solar-electricity are produced right here on place. All our solutions are invented and built by ourselves, and we enjoy the company of similar-minded people who value moderate living, independence and creating things themselves.
We want you to be part of our daily life. Tasks at hand are to maintain and to improve the house, different renovations, gardening, the regular household like cleaning, cooking, keeping the fire going, and helping out with our daughter. We will mostly work together but sometimes you will work independent.
We can host maximal 2 people at a time.
We who live on the farm are:
David (32) and Nora (32) have been living here since 2014. We actually met during Noras first volunteering-holiday in Sweden! Lilja (5 years), who keeps everybody from working on the farm. And our cat Snövit, protector of the realm.
We look forward to your message. Please describe yourself a bit.
Kind regards, Nora & David

Some upcoming projects *️️️️️️️together with us*️️️️️️️ are to renovate the windows and generally taking care of the yard. While staying here you would be living and eating with us in our house.
