  • Description


    I recently bought a small house in the forest in Bohuslän in a famous rock climbing area. I work for the municipality with environmental strategy, and in my free time I do some rock climbing. My dream is also to take care of this lovely countryside house that I bought, but I realized that a couple of helping hands would make a big difference.
    I’d like to get some help with gardening and building projects. This summer I am also planing to keep a couple of sheep. I also have a rescue cat living with me but he is very shy to strangers.

    As I am working on office hours you have to be prepared to spend a lot of time on your own, or you are two friends coming here. As the house is very small I won’t have more than 1-3 people staying over at the same time.
    If you stay with me you will have time to explore the nature here, rock climbing and the sea (fjords) which are 4 km from the house. I have a standup paddle board that I can lend for sunny days on the water.

    We can learn about gardening and building together. I can teach you about swedish culture and give you tips on what to see and explore in the area.
    If you are a rock climber this spot is like made for you. Many climbing areas are easily reached by bike. If you are new to rock climbing I can show you the basics of bouldering on the rock by the house.

  • Help


    I am currently renovating on an old guest house that needs lots of love. I’d also like to build a chicken coop and are preparing a grazing area for a couple of sheep. At the same time I have a couple renovation projects in the main house and a vegetable garden to look after. It’s possible for you to decide which projects motivates you.
