Dos Visits Patric, Sophie and Iris

In our village there is really just one place to go for the opportunity to meet new people while getting a cup of coffee.
And that is the village church, twice a week you can take your kids there to play while you can enjoy a cup of coffee.
And that is where I first met Sophie and Patric. The couple that people around here knew as “Stockholmarna” (=people from Sweden´s capitol city Stockholm).
We started talking and instead of being just neighbors we became friends.

With an apartment in Stockholm they started looking for a summer house in the south part of Sweden. And ended up buying a 300 year old run -down house with dirt floor that was far from livable. For the following years they worked on it during vacations and in-between jobs.
And when they had baby Iris they decided to skip the city for a while and live in the summerhouse full time.

    Herregud vad fint! Har länge spanat på huset från utsidan eftersom det är så fantastiskt fint och undrat hur insidan såg ut. Och det överträffade alla förväntingar. Snyggt! /Slottsfrun

    Vilket fantastiskt hem. Jag lämnade också storstaden för några år sedan. Men det blev Åre för min del. Helt fantastiskt här uppe, men blir sugen på en Skånelänga när jag ser dessa bilder.

  14. IngenFara January 31, 2010 at 22:45 #

  17. Annie February 1, 2010 at 04:30 #

    I love it! I have six of those nagel stacking candlesticks and I’m so inspired to get more and have a huge grounded chandelier like theirs. Thank you so much for showing us their house!

  18. Sara i Rögla February 1, 2010 at 08:54 #

    Anade ju att detta skulle bli fint…. och så älskar jag hur du har kombinerat bilderna. Mmmm vad härligt att du sparade detta till en snömulen måndagmorgon.

    Kan inte låta bli att tänka på det underbara programet Grand designs!
    De brukar ju göra såna helt galna projekt med gammla lador och ruiner.
    Det här är makalöst vackert!

    Men vad skumt. Det är ju Patrik, en gammal vän till mig från Uppsala. Åh vad fint han har fått det. Blev just på väldigt bra humör. Hälsa från mig nästa gång du träffar honom. Jag var tillsammans med hans bästa vän David i många år.

    Jenny at Dos Family answers: Hej Mikaela. Vad tokigt och roligt,

  37. Elisabeth Dunker February 8, 2010 at 00:16 #
