About our home

My wife and I have three girls and two boys. The family have grown the last years and we have now 4 grandchildren and two more is on the way. We also have two cats.
Our children live in different places, three in Sweden, one in Norway and one in New Zeeland. So now my wife and I live by ourselves with the two cats.
My wife is a scoolteacher for children with special needs and I am working as a carpenter and a locksmith.

We have a large house on the countryside. The house is about a hundred years old and it has been a lot of renovation under the years. The house has 6 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and two toilets, utility room, a big kitchen and a living room. I the front of our house there is a large porch and a large garden where you can enjoy the sun the whole day and in the evenings you can barbeque, play football or just enjoy the silence.

We have a few neighbours, but also a lot of open fields around us. There is a lake ten minutes’ walk from where we live and even an old limestone quarry nearby where younger people like to bathe.
We have a lot of wildlife around us, for example a lot of birds, deer, wild sheep, wild hogs and moose. There are several lakes around here with nice beaches and there is even possible to fish here.
