By the end of 2018 all major renovation work at THE LODGE – Torsby has been completed. We were able to realise this thanks to a granted ‘företagsstöd’ (company support) from ‘Länsstyrelsen Värmland’. This financial support is part of the ‘Landsbygdsprogrammet 2014-2020’ and also comes partly from the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development. The renovation work consisted of the rebuilding of the outdated former ‘Vägsjöfors Gästgivaregård’ into a modern bed and breakfast (B&B) facility.
After having finished ‘Tullhuset’ and ‘Esmee’s Cottage’ Marc and Joanne renovated, adjusted and modernized the main building ‘THE LODGE’ into a new business. This stage included rebuilding of 5 bedrooms, construction of several new bathrooms, renewal of the kitchen, facelift of the living room and veranda, construction of a new drainage and sewage system, the installation of a supplementary and sustainable heating system and placement of solar panels. Herewith THE LODGE – Torsby has become also more sustainable and environmental prove for the future. We are very grateful for the co-operation with several local companies under the renovation period (November 2016 – 2018).
