Oh hello. I am really hoping that your day is brighter than mine. Looking out of the window I feel like it is 4pm already. It is pouring down with rain, it is dark and chances are high that we will not see much light for the rest of the day either. Absolutely not my favorite period of the year.

Owners are Julia and Viktor and they live here with their children Estrid and Sven. On a small island in the Gothenburg archipelago. It measures just two kilometers from one side to the other and has 1,500 inhabitants.

The renovation is actually still ongoing. Step by step and slow. Making sure to pay attention to details!
