  • Description



    I live on Askøy an Island outside of Bergen. A lovely country area. I am a yogateacher and I do ceramics. I have a lot of projects on inside and outside the house.
    I have been living here since november 2020. I have renovated the whole house. It`s a beautiful architect drawn house from 1977. I live here with a very sweet cat. So you have to like cats :-)

    Are you handy, have carpenting skills, like gardening, are tidy, can chop wood and like to work outside?

    I need help collecting and chopping wood, and stabling it to dry. This is the only project i need help with right now due to the season.

    You will be working alone, since I have a busy fall with other projects. 😄

    You will have your own appartment on the ground floor 50 square metres with your own entrance. Please note that you clean the flat after tour stay. I will wash the linnen and towels.

    I as I am working a bit in the city I am not home every day. So vegetarian food will be provided so that you can make dinner in that flat. When I am home it’s nice to eat together and get to know eachother.

    The nature amazing and there are many hikingroutes and sightseeing to do. The bussstop is 3 minutes from my house. It takes a 45 minute bussride to Bergen.
