  • Description


    We are a small family of four, Ken, Una, Ria (2yo) and Aura the Persian cat, living on Suðuroy on the Faroe Islands.
    Ken is a painter, while Una runs a webshop while having Ria at home. We like to experiment with good food and taking it easy, listening to music, playing, going for walks.
    This summer we bought a small, old house and are looking for help with renovating it :-)

  • Help


    We need help renovating out small, old house inside. Construction/renovation skills are required.
    We e.g. need to do:
    - even the floor (it's a very old and quirky house)
    - remove and build up new walls
    - build a bathroom

    We also have a garden that could use a hand - but the house is priority #1!
