  • Description


    An old family farmstead, the house has been inhabited by my ancestors since at least 1700. An old house need much care to be preserved for future generations, you can be a part of that process.

    I work at the university in Uppsala teaching electronic engineering. In my apartment there I hosted more than 200 persons through CS and bnb (references can be found on this sites). I heard about workaway through people staying with me. I play guitar and bass quite well. I also sing in a pop choir that often do dinner shows and concerts. I dance lindy hop and latin dances. Hopefully there is possible to gather a bunch of creative people so we can make music in the evening's.

    The farmstead has long traditions, if only the walls could speak. The municipality has many options for outdoor activities but mainly this is a way of taking care of a country house without renting or owning it.

    There is a variety of work available, painting the outside walls, cement and restore old windows. Clean the attic and other spaces used as storage. clean windows. Clear the flower beds. Cut the grass. Do a proper floor scour as back in the days. There is cats living at the farmstead they are allowed to be inside the house but are more of outside cats but they need some love.

    You will stay at the upper floor in the main building. There is a bathroom there, also a kitchen but right now it is used as laundry room hopefully there is soon a change (maybe with your help), downstairs there is a main kitchen. You will probably cook yourself and buy grocery for a agreed amount of money per week and person. There is cats living at the farmstead they are allowed to be inside the house but are more of outside cats. The property is surrounded by cattle, sheep and cows that graze on the surrounding fields farmed by my neighbour.

    Hälsingland is a very beautiful municipality in Sweden. During the summer there is folk music festivals within an hour by car. The near by archipelago is fantastic some parts are accessible by foot, but a boat would give access to public shelter on the islands. During the winter there is a ski resort one hour away, I go snowboarding there whenever I can. If you have a few days off you can stay at my apartment in Uppsala from where you reach Stockholm in 40 min with train or in an hour with Flixbus. I hosted many people doing workaway in Sweden on my couch there.
