  • Description


    We are two men living on the countryside just outside Oslo, the capital of Norway. Here we live together with our three dogs (one German Shepard and two Saarloos Wolfhond), a cat and two pigeons. Beside regular house keeping and maintenance, our main activities at home is connected to our collection of rare and uncommon plants and training dogs.

    Our home is located about 25 minutes from Oslo and 40 minutes from Oslo airport, Gardermoen. We are close to the largest fresh water delta in northern Europe, with an amazing number of bird and fish species.

    Our home has a great location close to the airport and city life, at the same time we are at the countryside with a spectacular wildlife and view over the delta.

    At the present we are about to reconstruct the garden and upgrade the house. We will also change our 10.500 m2 property into a private botanical collection, and at the same time we will build up a small nursery for rare and uncommon hardy plants.

    We can provide bicycles, and often we have a spare car for shorter trips (maximum 10 km from our place, or longer by agreement) For the use of the car you only cover for fuel and road tolls.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    At our place you can learn about traditional food and cooking as well as Norwegian traditions and language. As we live in a nature reserve it is possible to learn about conservation of wetlands in Norway. Oslo can provide access to a wide range of cultural arrangements and exhibitions.

  • Help


    Here are always a lot of tasks to solve, so we can find proper things to do for anyone. First of all we need help for construction of the garden/forrest area, plant production and care, carpentry, housekeeping, animal care and general maintenance.

    NOTE that we both have daytime jobs outside the home, so we depend on that you can work independently (or you might have working hours in the afternoon/evening).

    You can not be allergic to dogs/cats.
