  • Description

    Description

    My sleddogs are my lifestyle and my family :D
    The location of this property is perfect for us, due to the majestic surroundings and the proximity not only to the main Norwegian airport, but also to other main towns around.

    The weather is awesome the most of the time, sun is shinning and the land is covered on snow from almost late October to the beggining of May. During the winter, we drive sleds, and after spring comes, we drive a Quad/Four-wheeler. The cold is dry and I havent met anyone who has been freezing here due to that :D

    Me and some of the doggies are going to be living at the Hotel due our development project. We have some new plans to come true, like becoming a "free waist hotel" or a permaculture project.
    At the same time that you will be surrounded by mountains and experience lots of natural outdoor activities, you will also have the opportunity to enjoy hotel life, enjoy the indoor swimming pool or sauna during your free time, WiFi, gym...

    While you are staying at the hotel, you will feel free to enjoy all the facilities. Nobody will stop you. We love having barbecues outside and enjoy the international environment. We want you to feel like home, and we really appreciate your efforts. We will accommodate you in one of the hotel rooms and food will be served 3 times a day.

    35 minutes away from the hotel, there is my house which is under renovation, but our life is anyway comfortable! We have running water, hot shower and bathroom! You will have your own room with heating. The internet is limited right now at the house, but we will agree about it :D

    Lillehammer is 45 min. from here and 3 hours away from Oslo airport by car.

    We do not follow any A4 schedule, and I am not going to impose any task. Common sense is the key and good communication.

    What I am expecting to you is to be open minded, like we all here are around the house and the hotel :D We will find out a schedule that fits us all.

    Hi from the fjords in Norway :) *️️️️️️I will constantly update the profile depending on how things will develop here.

    *️️️️️️Before you apply :)
    - Please, read everything. It will help both of us if you have a clear idea of what you will find :D
    - I am very sorry , but I cannot accept applications for less than 2 weeks. It takes time to get to know all the routines. Optimal time is more than one month. Only maintenance and small building projects can apply for shorter periods.

    I have been asked many times about the kind of work that needs to be done here and some workawayers are also afraid due to negative previous experiences. Sorry to be straight but we do not want "slaves" here ;) I love my dogs and I love teaching other people about them. And it takes time.

    The main reason I need you, is because I cannot do everything by myself :D I need people both at the hotel and at the house. If you are at the house, I need you to feel responsible to clean after yourself. I really appreciate when workawayers come and see how I do my daily tasks even if not asked. It shows me that they are interested.

    Another interesting point: While workawaying at the hotel, there are many opportunities to earn money!

    We are looking for new employees, so this might also be a opportunity to get a job!

    A bit more detailed description of the profile whom could fit here :)

    PROFILE/SKILLS NEEDED

    Painting: Gotta give the house a "facelift".

    Maintenance and handcraft: Real possibility for employment. From carpentry to painting.

    Hotel positions: Real possibility for employment. Help with very easy tasks, vacuuming, cleaning windows, painting walls, floors, collecting wood, cleaning, small project things. If I can do it, you can do it :D

    No matter which profile suits you better, I might ask you to help around. We live under the same roof, we share responsibilities like cleaning, cooking, providing help with wood...

    I am very easy going and open mind. We will respect each other :) and therefore I also hope you respect the other workawayers. As a responsible of the house, I will not accept childish behavior or negative comments. We are also very concerned about keeping the harmony in the house. We are all different. I am not expecting you to work 5 hours per day. I am more expecting open mind volunteers that would like to experience Norway and go on a 4 days drive with me and the dogs if necessary. (strictly professional).

    You cannot be allergic to cats since my cat lives inside :) and I am sorry but I will not accept more dogs or cats, since I need to have my own inside sometimes due to socialization training and so.

    The rest of the time you are free. We will agree on groceries and who need to drive :)
    If this sounds like fun or like a good plan, WRITE A MESSAGE!!! :D

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    There are lots of natural opportunities around here. To make it easy, we can make an agreement in advance about when and where I will may need you or how many hours. For me is the same if you prefer to be here 10 days and then 5 free for example or if you prefer to help 5 days and 2 days free. We will find a solution! Send me som info about you and how long you would like to stay :) See you soon!
    Charming location and freedom. Lillehammer nearby. Lakes and ski resorts.
