  • Descrição

    Descrição

    We're an easygoing family of 2 adults and two children (born in July 2009 and a baby born February 2021) with lots of projects going on all the time. We like working towards becoming as self-sufficient as possible. We're located in a log house in the beautiful countryside just outside of the town Järna, 40 min by car south of Stockholm. The walking trail "Sörmlandsleden" is very close to our house and lots of lakes within car- or biking-distance.

    When we don't have other plans (like normal jobs or vacation plans) we like to get up early and eat breakfast around 8 am, lunch around 1 pm and dinner around 6pm. We usually start our projects around 9-10am (unless it's pooring down :-) ). We take a break when needed or for lunch and continue in the afternoon or evening depending on the weather or other needs.

    Oportunidades de intercâmbio cultural e aprendizado

    We're a very social family and like to hang out with people while doing stuff together but you also need to be self-going since we have jobs/school/kids and other things that take up a lot of our time. We prefer to only have one workawayer at a time since we have noticed it makes it easier to connect.

    There's a lot to see near where we live, a lot of beautiful nature and lakes/the Baltic Sea if you have your own car or like to walk/bike. It's an antroposofic Mekka with Waldorf schools, architecture and gardening for ex.
    There is quite a rich wildlife not too far away if you go by car where you can get to see deer, moose and wild boar if you're lucky. We can help you find things to do while youre here depending on what you're interested in!

    Also, you will get to know a little bit about how it is in a Swedish family. :-)

  • Ajuda

    Ajuda

    We're looking for someone who either likes to babysit/cook for us OR who likes to work hard (most of what we need help with outdoors is quite hard work!)
    We work together with our workawayer's as much as possible but sometimes you will need to work on your own depending on our schedule and what type of work.

    BABYSITTING AND COOKING
    It would be great if you could help to babysit our baby girl born February 2021 whenever we need to do our gardenprojects. She goes to kindergarden in the mornings until 1 pm except in the summertime when the kindergarden is closed. Mostly she can join us but sometimes she walks off to explore on her own and then it's great to have someone who looks after her and likes to play with her.
    It would also be great if you could help out to make lunch and dinner, especially dinner because it's hard to have time with both the DIY projects, taking care of a baby and cook. We don't mind vegetarian food but we prefer eating fish/meat with most meals so it would be great if you also like to cook that. You can feel free to cook your own recipes and/or if you rather want to get ideas about what to cook from us.

    HARD WORK
    We need help mostly outdoors for about 4-5h/day with things like:
    - Some small carpentry projects (for ex building stairs to our cabin and the main house, the inner walls in our outhose, changing the deck on one of our cabins etc)
    - Oiling the deck to our house + our two cabins
    - General maintenance around the house like: taking branches and trash to the recycling station, trimming grass, lawn mowing, removing saplings etc
    - Chopping and stacking wood
    - Gardening: digging, weeding, watering, picking slugs at night, replanting etc
    - Painting projects
    Etc etc
    It's great if you have some carpentry skills but it's not necessary! :-)

    We will be doing stuff together with our workaway'er as much as possible but more during the weekends (when both Kerstin and Tomas are at home) so it's great if you can take time off some time between Monday - Thursday.

    When we don't have other plans (like normal jobs or vacation plans) we like to get up early and eat breakfast around 8 am, lunch around 1 pm and dinner around 6pm. We usually start our projects around 9-10am (unless it's pooring down :-) ). We take a break when needed or for lunch and continue in the afternoon or evening depending on the weather or other needs.

    Acomodação

    We have a guest cabin with a single bed that can be made into a double pull-out-bed. There is also internet.
    We provide sheets, blankets and towel.

    You need to make your own breakfast but we will try to eat all together at other meals (whoever is at home).
    We need help with cooking and doing dishes but we will provide food - we usually eat meat or fish with every meal. It's ok if people are vegetarians but we don't eat beans, lentils etc and we're not so good at cooking vegetarian food so you would have to help make the vegetarian dishes. :-)

    Algo mais...

    In the time off you're free to travel around or do whatever you want. We don't have a car to loan out but we have bikes and we can give a ride to the nearest trainstation, that's 5km away in Järna.
    We live 40 min by car south of Stockholm or about 1h by train.

    We don't provide food on the days/half days you have time off so then you need to take care of your own food!

    We don't accept people being drunk or using drugs while staying with us.

    We want non-smokers since we're a smoke-free home!

    We also expect you to help with house tasks like cleaning, helping with dishes after every meal, cooking for everyone and cleaning up after yourself in the guest cabin before you depart.

    We hope you will have fun and enjoy your time with us!!
