  • Description

    Description

    We (Jenny, Jon Dylan 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 Jon is back to work full time and Jenny is 7 month pregnant so we could need an extra hand to get the property in shape.

    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 work outs!

    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 be living a very simple life in a caravan. There is running water in the garage 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.

    What else ...

    We start everyday at 6 am. Off course you don’t have to but since our 2,5 year old wakes up early and since we have another one on the way we need all the sleep we can get so don’t expect late nights with us. Sunrise however, that we can do :)
