  • Description


    I am a 50 yr. old woman who lives in Valderoey Island, outside the City of Aalesund in Norway. I have two children and my daughter Tora (15) lives with me. Tora and I just bought a house from 1980, and we need some help areound the house during the renovation process. Our interests are music, nature, exercise, cooking, architecture, travelling, entrepreneurship and interesting people in general.
    We are open, honest and friendly people who are curious about other people, their culture and we love to welcome people into our lives and share a common life for a while. we like to share a good meal, take trips to show you around and make sure that you are having a good time while staying with us. Our home is open to you, and we will do what we can to give you a good experience during your workaway time in Norway.

    It will be a great advantage for us if you are a pratical person who is used to doing some sort of construction work. We need help with everything from tearing down walls, to construction of new ones, to clearing out clutter and as you can imagine, it will be a bit messy. But we will work together, I will take charge and make sure we also have nice and good breaks, with good food, companionship and a good plan. I am a very practical person myself and can do most things, but need a helping hand in order to get our home together for us to live in. I dont expect anyone to take any respinsibility for anything in the process, just to be a helping hand a few hours a day as we work on my house and garden.
