We're a married couple thats been together since we were kids basically. 15 years and counting! We are blessed with two beautiful children but we don't have enough hours every day to get our project forward with our house or our eco-hotel project, so we thought maybe workaway would be the way to go! Langhamn is an old historic property situated in Dyrøy (directly translates to Animal Island). Dyrøy is in the Senja region (home of iconic Segla mountain) and is the greenest island in the area with a special climate because we're hidden between the island Senja (Norways second largest island) and the mainland giving us very good "shelter from the storm" :) I work as market- and communications manager for Visit Senja Region while my husband works for the local firedepartment and is currently studying to become a paramedic.

We want to start up a eco-hotel in the future and this will be the start of it. Alot of great learning in sustainability and room for creativity in this project. I have grown up in the area and have a lot of local knowledge that I am happy to share with our visitors. Dyrøy is a historic location filled with history!
We need help in different tasks with demolition, carpentry and sorting and preserving old furniture at the time. Redecorating in various forms and alot of painting! You should be handy and have a good eye to what looks good!
Painting outside, painting walls inside. Upcycling furniture. There are many tasks to choose from, so there is a good chance of you being able to choose what you like to do either it is painting walls outside or inside, doing constructional work or upcycling kitchens.
