    Hei! :)

    My name is Ole. I and my family have a mountain farm in Norway, and we would love for someone, couple or singles, brave enough to live and work with us for some weeks. :)

    Our family consists of me, my parents, my sister and her 2 sons (and Shana the cat).

    Our farm is in beautiful Gudbrandsdalen, north of Lillehammer. Our plan is to redo the mountain farm from mid-June until mid-july. As of now, we don't have any animals other than Shana and pet fishes.

    We would love someone who would love to live in a 1600 old timber cabin in one of the worlds northern summer farm cabins. You'll experience loads of gorgeous nature, together with carpentry work like ripping out hundred-year-old flooring, making new concrete flooring and building new wooden walls. The tasks at an old farm can be pretty much everything, hehe.

    We live a quiet family life, and love to play some cards or to watch a movie. My dad plays the accordion, and they love to dance traditional Norwegian dances. Ask them to learn you one or two. ;)

    We have had over a 100 working guests through a period of 20 years, and love meeting new people from different cultures, so don't be afraid. We can handle most people, hehe.

    We hope to hear from you, and we'll be happy to answer questions you may have about us and our farm. :)

    Best regards
    Ole & the family

    We'd love some help with the daily tasks, like carpentry, painting, making fences and so on. :)
