Hi! We are a familie of four, Laurens (45) Liene (33) Niva & Lily (2,5 and newborn) We moved from Amsterdam to Sweden. We left our house in the city and decided to start a new adventure. Now 1 year later we are building a house in an old barn! Lucky to have found a lovely piece of land 15 min from Älmhult. We still can't believe we live in such a beautiful place, close to nature, little lake beaches close to home, seeing deer and amazing big birds every day. We would love to share this experience with people interested in seeing how a transition like ours could look/feel. Enjoy the Swedish summer while helping us to build the house/ create a garden.
