My name is Denise born in the Netherlands and came to live in Sweden in December 2012. In my free time I like to go out and roam in the forest with my 2 dogs, build things, work in the garden, make drawings and visit friends.
august 2021 I bought a house in Treskog, Värmland. It really is a fixer upper and I could use some help with that. First plans are getting the garden ready for summer. Build a greenhouse, do some landscaping etc. Just to get it all nice again. The garden needs some TLC because the former owners have used the house as a summer house since 1970! since then there has not been done a lot in and around the house. For my first workaway (one person or a couple) I have planned a period of 4 to 5 weeks (29 april till 1st of june)
A bit more about Treskog
Its a small village, if you can call it that, close to a small town called Gunnarskog.
Lovely nature with forest, pastures and a lot of lakes.
There are many forest trails and forest roads you can walk, cycle and drive on right from my garden.
Treskog is not that far from Arvika and the Shopping mall in Charlottenberg.
The Norwegian border is also nearby.
A bit more about the house
Build in 1945. Has not been renovated since 1970. 2 bedrooms (at the moment)
1 Bathroom (with toilet)
2 bedrooms (at the moment)
Guest house (whats left of it. build in 1800s)
The garden is about 4000m2. Mainly grass but also some trees (small and big)
Things that need to be done before summer
Build an area for the greenhouse
Build a greenhouse from old windows (if not my old greenhouse will be set upp for this year)
Fence in the rest of the garden (there are already two big "kennels" for the dogs that they can enter from inside the house)
Take down a lot of bushes and some small trees
Make the chicken pen bigger.
Does this sound like cool projects and a lovely place to spend some time, please sent me a message and I can give you some more information and answer any questions.

As I live so close to the forest there is a lot of nature to explore. There are several kind of activities you can do around here. Such as canoeing, moose safari, horseback riding, visiting Karlstad...As this is a big country a car or at least a drivers license so you can rent a car i a big plus.
As I work a lot I need help with the day to day shores that need to be done in the house. Such as vacuuming, dusting, laundry etc. I also have a small vegetable garden that needs to be taken care of during spring and summer months and mowing the lawn. In the winter it will be snow shoveling. Cleaning the chicken coop and the occasional walk with the dogs if have to be away for the whole day. As I am still renovating the house their are things that need to be done. So if you have building/renovating skills you can:
*️️Renovate my bedroom. A wall need to taken out, a big closet build, new flooring and new wallpaper.
*️️in the livingroom/eating area a big cabinet needs to be build.
*️️new flooring on the upstairs hallway
*️️ some finishing touches in the kitchen, toilet, living room
I live in a free standing house that is surrounded by a garden. In the basement there is a apartment that has a living room with tv/dvd player. 2 bedrooms, one with a double bed one with bunk beds. a small simple kitchen and a bathroom with toilet, shower and sink.
