As Helene Farsjø and Kasper Arenstorff a few years ago bought a property at Janderup in Varde, was the property of a mark on the country.

Now the family is living on an island.

How is the view from the property. Private dronefoto.

For the last few days, rain and wind have flooded the fields to such an extent that the whole area has been water-resistant, apart from the mound in the terrain, as the site is located on.

- We take it as an experience. And the kids think the, here is that it is very funny, tells the optician Kasper Arenstorff to Ekstra Bladet.

his Wife Helene is from Norway, and she is, according to the husband accustomed to extreme weather situations and long distances.

When the couple bought the desert property located, they were also told that they could risk to be closed inside of the water on rare occasions.

- We have experienced it a few times before. Usually lasts the one day. But this time it has lasted any longer than it used to be, says Kasper.

the Kids can't get in school, when the family are transformed to the islanders. And Kasper can't get to work as a optometrist in san diego. Helene is an artist, so she can work in the home.

the Family has built completely new, so now thrones a beautiful property of 250 square meters in the middle of the floodwaters.

- the sea Views we can in each case do not complain, laugh Kasper Arenstorff.

On the lowest located area, where the water is around 2.5 metres deep, so you can't just wade from island and over to 'the mainland'.

the Family has become accustomed to check the weather forecast carefully, and then plan out of the situation.

Their parents live in Tinghøj, and here the family can always stay the night, if the water prevents them from getting home.

The only fly in the ointment is the warm weather.

- If we could get a little frost, so could the area be converted into a frozen lake, where we could stand on skates. It would be a dream scenario, saith the familiefaderen.
