We are a family of four. Ann-Christine, Daniel and our two sons Melker 5 and Vidar 3. We also have a cat named Sixten. We live in a small village called Kolbyttemon in the country side about 12 km south of the town of Linköping in the region of Östergötland in the south of Sweden. We eat everything, but mostly ecological food.
We have moved an 150 year old timber house and we are now building it up close to our present house. The plan is that the timber house will be our future home when it is ready. We could really love some help from someone handy who like to carpenter, paint or can help with other practical things in this project. We also have a garden where we can need some help and if you like you can alsom help with the children and cooking family meals.

Here you can learn more about swedish culture, nature, and building a traditional timber house. You can also practice swedish and english.
We would welcome help with building our new house, so we would like you to be handy and have at least some experience working with your hands with carpentry, painting etc. If you like helping in the garden that is also appreciated. And if you would like to help with the children and cook family meal once in a while that would also be nice.
