    God dagens!

    This is the Ek household, with me Madole and my teenage daughter Jessica. We live in a big house close to nature, with a big garden, and never ending growth of gras...
    Over ten years my family has had workawayers, and now with my own house i think its my time :)

    We dont have any pets, unless you count the mice in the walls. But we do dogsit occasionally both big and small furry ones.

    I work three days a week with septic tanks, my daughter does football and riding! She has her own horse nearby at my sisters farm.

    Right now when winter is arround the corner we need help with CHOPPING WOOD!

  • Help


    CHOPPING WOOD This is right now the biggest help needed! I have trees ready and waiting to get choped, split, and carried down to my basement! No experience needed, but the willpower to learn to use a chainsaw, and included elbow grease. The wood is located at my sisters farm nearby.
    You will need to bring WARM CLOTHING and i will provide warm working gloves just your size.

    Also househould stuff, cooking, cleaning, some light renovations like putting up wallpaper, and keeping us company :)
