  • Description


    Hi! We are 4 friends who have joined forces to make rafts! We are:
    Janice, the super lady and mama who has tons of world experience.
    Magnus, a super kind guy who has two lovely dogs (Baba and Didi).
    Sören, an artist who loves traveling and people.
    We are a friendly bunch and love to meet new people.
    and erik la Mackina our pirate!!

    We got a house for free. our beloved house "Kummlan", we dissmanteled it and now we build a house boat on our sweet Sani Bell with the material.
    We are trying to be as organic as possible. Our goal is to have as much material in the boat out of recycled parts of the house.

    We are a happy bunch and we will provide a cozy sleeping spot, food, hopefully friendship, and a great experience of recycling and building a boat! We are asking for a few hours of work each day.

    the longer goal is to make cash and knowhow from the first rafts to be able to build a dream. A grenhousesunaboat it is a jungle inside a greenhouse heated by a sauna and open to the public. we want space for couchsurfers to stay the night in the jungle and the aim is to increase the happiness in the cold (both wether and socially) and hard (the happy index of Stockholm is not in a good state...) city of Stockholm.

    Welcome :)
