The house of family Beriksson
The Berikssons like the traditional Swedish architecture with lots of red and white wood, because it reminds them of their original home. When they moved to Riverview a few years ago, they didn't have much money and could only afford to build a small house.
But the beautiful garden made up for it.
The Berikssons live solely on their own produce from their garden - and the occasional fish. Finn, the head of the young family, comes from a family that has been in the fishing business for decades. He knows just about anything there is to know about fishing. He also loves his aquarium, in which he puts his most precious catches. His wife Anne is a devoted gardener and cook. Together, they care for their little twins, Erik and Marja, the best way they can.
Finn and Anne know that soon, they will have to think about an annex so that the twins could have their own rooms, but for now, the top floor has to be a shared bedroom.
