We (Jenny, Jon, Dylan, Bonnie and the cat James) live next to a lake in the forest close to Gothenburg (30 min by car) and to the airport. We just build a new house and need help in and around the house. We have a lot of projects ongoing so we work hard to get it all done. At this moment Jenny is back to work full time and Jon is a stay at home dad with baby Bonnie (10 months) and Dylan (3,5 year) so we could need an extra hand to get the property in shape.

Help around the house
Learn how we build houses in Sweden that suits the weather here. You will also be able to explore the surroundings with great forests and lakes.
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
Depending on how far we are in the building process you may help with painting, building (carpenter skills is a plus) carrying stuff, cleaning up inside and around the house. We also have a lot of things to do outside to prepare the garden for planting. Digging, prepare planting bed, building stone walls outside, dig for down pipes, and finish up our beach area. This is hard work so be prepared for some workouts!
On the property we also have a guesthouse where we used to live but that we now will rent out so you will also help with cleaning and keep that place nice and tidy.
An extra plus is if you’re a couple or two people that can help us.
You will stay in the guesthouse with no running water inside . There is running water in the outdoor kitchen or in the main house close by. On your spear time you will be able to borrow our canoe or sup board to explore the surrounding. There’s also great trails to explore nearby.
Since both our youngsters wakes up early (6 am) don’t expect late nights with us. Sunrise however, that we can do :)
