Series: Building a new house

This is the series where I tell you about the new house in a self-development area in the Netherlands. Initially, I talked about the house project in between other posts. Not until 2020 the project got so intense that complete blogs were about the new house.

I was born 1967 in Stockholm, Sweden. I grew up in the small village Vågdalen in north Sweden. 1989 I moved to Umeå to study Computer Science at University of Umeå. 1995 I moved to the Netherlands where I live in Almere not far from Amsterdam.

Here on this site I let you see my creations.
