We are originally a family of 6, I, Carina, my four daughters and my husband, Pär. Since last summer all girls, but Nanna, 18, have, more or less, left home for further studies. My beloved Pär died a year ago after a long time with sickness.

We started to welcome HelpXers to our Uddevalla home five years ago and since then we have met so many interesting, wonderful, helpful, caring and skilled people - men and women, boys and girls, who in different ways have helped us with various practical matters, but also contributed to increase our understanding of the world and letting us become their friends - in many cases, I believe, for life!

I have promised Pär to keep and care for his old home in Grundsund and it is my hope to be able to. We have, therefore, two properties to welcome you to!

We offer accomodation ( your own room ) in one of our two homes, food and friendship in exchange for some practical help. Both indoor and outdoor help is needed and you should be prepared to do some household work as well. Most help is needed outside, though, like wood chopping, painting, building, repairing things, gardening, weeding and more, depending on the season and your preferences!

We are flexible with working hours, but require about 20-30 hours/week.Some weeks more and other weeks less. You are welcome to stay for at least one week but if we get on well together you are welcome to stay longer. A period between one week and three months would be great!

We have four cats to chear up our lives! They spend most of their time outdoors, when not sleeping by the fire!

We welcome you, who like to spend some time with us, with work and pleasure, here at the beautiful Swedish west coast!
