  • Beschreibung


    There is a small very old house sitting on the rocks next to the ocean. This house is waiting for someone to look after it while working on some small renovation projects. This house and the island where it is located is full of history. The local community has a vibrant cultural life with friendly inclusive people that are easy to get to know.
    As the owner I am looking for someone handy, go-getter, positive person- willing to live in a primitive home. Make it your home away from home, while I am not there.

    Living in the arctic and working on a historic home that is over hundred years old, with local people, in a remote part of the world will require a lot of adaptation. Care and appreciation for the past. The history of the pomor trade between Russia and Norway. Learning to speak the Norwegian language and being an independent care taker for someones home while the owner is away will require integration in to the local life even more so than living with the host family. The local community has art, festivals, snowball games, birdwatching, fishing, music, a fortress, blues festival and so much more to offer.

    The main project is renovating a small bath room while working with the local plumber. As I am intending to keep the house in a somewhat vintage/ current style under improved conditions, the bathroom is the only room that will be brand new. The original kitchen is stored in the basement and is in need of being moved upstairs and painted. The old basement needs to be sorted and improved. Other odds and ends.
    You will be in FaceTime communication with me and working with a local friend who will help out and welcome you to the community,

    Vardo is a dense town where you can walk everywhere. There is several resturants, a hotel, and a very cool local pub. When the snow gets around you can use "spark" to get around.
