Area: ØstfoldWe are a family of five in our late thirties. We have a teenager daughter, and two younger kids in kindergarten. We consider ourselves outgoing, hospitable and friendly. Oh, and let's not forget the two dogs and the cat! If allergies is an issue be assured that the animals are never allowed in the guest house. The mother has pelvic pain after pregnancy and is not able to work, or participate as much in the day to day work around the house. To increase life quality, reduce workload, and to meet new people workaway was considered a creative solution. Our place is on the west side of Fredrikstad with a three minute walk to the bus stop, 30 (probably less) minutes walk to the closest beach and 1 minute walk to the forest with many miles of hiking paths. Oslo with all its attractions, nightlife, people and activities are just an hour by train away. We're happy to pick you up at the Rygge airport or at Fredrikstad bus station. We can even at the bus stop down the road if you for some reason is traveling heavy. I'm Kent and I'm 35 and I work with electronics. Most of the time is spent fixing the house and attending the recurring tasks around the house. We have soon reached a plateau where we just have to service the house and property, not build from scratch. I also do some running on the paths in the forest behind the house. Want to join in? I would also like to learn languages, and in particular Hungarian.. My Significant other is Ellen and she's 39. She loves the garden and spends time there according to what the body allows. She also has an interest in design, carpenting, or anything crafts related. She has a workshop with industrial sewing machines, but it hasn't been used as much as she would like the last few years. The teenager is going to school at a design and craft,and from this autumn she will specialize in textiles. The middle child is in her last year in kindergarten and will attend the school this autumn. The youngest Wil transfer from the young kids group to the big kids group. He is excited about the change, but will miss his older sister for sure. We can be flexible regarding the work hours.if you want to go for a day to Oslo we will try to find an agreement that both parties can agree upon. The beauty of the norwegian archipelago is unrivaled and with your base here in Fredrikstad you can have a taste of all the tings offered. Fredrikstad is a typical summer city coming to life in early spring. Try our hospitality. I firmly believe you will have a positive experience!
Area: Washington StateMy husband and I live on Anderson Island, a small island in South Puget Sound. It is just a beautiful place. We have a large house and vegetable garden, small vineyard, and 10 acres of land. There is more work than the two of us can keep up with. We enjoy all of the work activities, and especially love to fellowship with each other as we do our daily tasks. Our dream is to have our property be an oasis of refreshing for others to enjoy. What a great idea to have people stay here in exchange for some help with our chores. The island has many outdoor nature activities to participate in. There are walking paths, beaches to explore, great quiet roads for bicycling, abundant wildlife, freshwater lakes for swimming and boating and also day trips to the nearby mountains or to the city of Seattle by using Public Transportation.
Area: New South WalesWe are a down to earth family seeking the company and help of other earthy people from all walks of life. My husband and I and our 4 children 12, 9, 4 and 3 live in a huge old farm house on a large scale irrigated cotton property near Burren Junction. We are repainting the farm homestead and re-establishing gardens, fencing and a tennis court after years of neglect. We are relatively isolated and usually only venture into town once a week. We have a long term plan to grow all our vegetables and fruit on farm and provide our own milk, meat and eggs. We enjoy working and socialising with others and we have a friendly but noisy family. We aim to share information, views and ideas with other open minded people who are happy to work along side us towards a goal for a more sustainable and enriched life.
