Description

We are full for the summer of 2014! Safe travels to all of you!

We live in a 127 year old school house in a beautiful, natural setting with hiking, biking, fishing, swimming, berry and mushroom gathering just outside our door. We are renovating this house to make it into an art, craft and culture center. We are 4 in the family with husband, wife and two daughters aged 7 and 3.

Help

We are looking for easy-going individuals, couples or families that have a great work ethic and attitude. We can train interested parties in the skills we need and in the winter we don't do much outdoor work so work is (mostly) indoors between November and February. We would love to have handy folks who know their way around a hammar, saw, ruler and spackle, but it is not necessary. There is always a lot to do here and the best thing our volunteers have is a willingness to do new things!

PLEASE READ: This year we have received a lot of volunteer requests. Please, if you write to us and we let you know we have space, then be considerate and let us know if you are going to cancel. Then we will give your place to some other traveler. Know your Workaway etiquette!

Languages spoken

English, Swedish, French, some German and Spanish

Accommodation

Our volunteers can stay in their own apartment in the main house which has one large bedroom, large kitchen with all ammenities, separate bathroom and shower room and a bright living room. Heating in our large home is with wood so it is not always as warm as a modern home, but it is spacious, clean with large windows throughout.

What else ...

Great opportunity to live in nature among the flora and fauna. Beavers, foxes, owls, moose are our neighbors.
