OK, here's the deal

Sooz and I lived in Stockholm for nearly three years, 1989-1991. We made a lot of good friends there, and we've visited Sweden almost every year since. Of all the places we've lived, we all feel a stronger connection to Sweden than anywhere else.

One thing most Swedish families have is some sort of a fritidshus, or summer house, out in the country, or on an island in the Swedish archipelago. We've stayed at a few with our friends, and always had a great time. It's long been a fantasy of ours to have something like that of our own, a place in Sweden that we can always go to, no matter where work takes us.

Recently, we've found a little plot of land, and the timing was right to start working on our little fantasy and make it a reality. We'll be posting over the upcoming months, detailing what we'll be doing to build our little island summer house.

Comments, ideas, words of encouragement, or words of warning, all will be welcomed!

How about some pictures of those strapping Swedish men for the female contingency!
