  • Description


    I have a private house from 1954, with a garden and a 30 m. private shoreline in beautiful Rosendal. The smalltown is situated between the mountains and Hardangerfjord. It's a paradise for those who like being outdoors either on a mountaintop, exploring nature or at sea.

    I always have projects going on in and outside the house. Help is both usefull and inspiring! What I need in June/ July/ August is a coulpe that can offer handy & creative budjetsmart for example
    1removing indoor wall panels, isolating and replacing new ones.
    2) building plastic roof over terrace below house.
    3) replacing windows in my brick house,
    4) smaller indoor plumbing / faucet attachments on sink.

    Are you innovative, selfgoing? Budget smart, positive, creative & and have good carpenters skills? And love nature? A good sense of humor, healthy lifestyle and being grounded is appreciated.

    I love meeting new people and working together. Come experience this beautiful place on earth! There are so many oppourtunities in this community. Come explore!

    In Rosendal we have Scandinavias smallest castle, "Baroniet i Rosendal". There renessanse garden is stunning. We have so much culture & history in this community. Our mountains are known for awsome hiking & camping! Our old church is a tourist attraction. Enjoy kayakk, fishing, mountian, glacier & path hiking. Our nature is also perfect for outdoor camping. I give yogalessons. The town had a public swimmingpool. And we have a football, vollyball and tennis court. You will not be bored!

This is my house. Build in 1954 but renovated in 2012. Still I always have need of getting something done and have renovating ideas I want to get done in the nearest future, that`s why I need you!
I have made a yogashala in the basement. Here you can take time to relax, recover and find your breath.
The Folgefonna glacier. Nearby. A magnificent experience.
From a camping trip, woke up to this view an early morning. Kayaked home in tíme to go to work. Nature is so close. So much to experience.
