    Description

    I live in a beautiful valley with 13 chickens. Im 29 years old and work as a handyman for a living.
    I've just recently taken over the family farm, so now I need some help fixing different buildings, and I hope you can help me!;)
    There is fresh air and beautiful Norwegian nature just outside the door. My farm is in Førde in Sogn og Fjordane. The nearest airport is called Førde (Foerde) airport.
    This is a paradise if you like mountainhikes both in the summertime aswell as the wintertime. Førde is located in the end of a Fjord, and the local river is very wellknown for its salmonfishing-opportunities.

    I've just taken over the family farm, so im fixing some of the buildings on the farm. There is the mainhouse, 1 garage and a 200 year old house that needs to be painted. The old house is also gonna get a new grass-roof, just like in the old days. The chickens need to get fed and looked after, and the whole barn is gonna get new walls outside. A lot of quite interesting projects. Im only one guy, so I need all the help I can get if im gonna do it all in one summer!:) there may be some more animals aswell. Time will tell:)

    Within 1 hour drive you can experience glacier, close by (10 mins by car)is also salmonfishing, rafting, mountain, fjords, big riverfalls, shoppingcenter, spa, trainingcenter, local brewery, cayakpadling and much more.

    My bestfriend has a ecofarm, and there is often a lot of volunteers there, so im used to speaking english and meeting strangers from all over the world:)
    Summertime is a pretty busy time for me, so I will be working a lot. There is not so many buses around my neighbourhood, but I do have a couple of bicycles that will come in handy if you wanna get around.

    You will live in a beautiful valley, with the surroundings of wild nature close by. But the nearest supermarket is only 10 mins away by car. I will instruct you in how you do the different tasks like painting walls, putting on grass-roof, and putting up woodenplanks on the barnwalls.
    I can show you how to get around on the mountains using an app on your phone if you like mountainhikes. I also have a cabin on the mountain that you can use:)
