  • Description


    Hej, Hello, Hola!

    We are Gustav and Anna, 40 and 35 years old and with lots of fun projects going on!

    But we also have a little 1 year old, which means that right now we are mostly in need of someone that’s good with kids, as well as some cooking and helping in the house, apart from gardening and helping with odd jobs around the house and renovation . We are a lot of people, kids, teens, adults, grandparents, great grandparents... so there is a lot of action.

    We have been renovating a 170 year old stone barn into our future summer home, and as with any old house, there is always things to be done! So if you are good with tools, or just interested in learning, there is always something to help with! :) We may also need help with the garden, the local market, etc.

    We are good cooks, and really appreciate when someone helps with cooking some delicious meals!

    We have a few guitars at home, and like music and singing, so if you like good food and a social lifestyle in the most idyllic scenery in south of Sweden please give us a shout

    We do not run any projects between 1october & 1st June .
