  • Description


    Hi! We are Ingeborg and Luca, Andrés (17), Ailén (15) and Ella and Julian (2,5 years and twins). With us are also Bella (dog) and two cats. We live in the South-East of Norway, on a small farm. Ingeborg works at the regional university in Bø (close by), and Luca works as a welder. We are a quite international family, and have traveled and lived in several countries and speak English, Spanish, German, Norwegian, Danish, French and Italian.

    We are looking for a couple that are are over 20 and have experience with physical work. We also look for an architect with experience in working with reuse/organic/sustainable materials that could give us some input on the restoration of the barn. Furthermore, we would also really like to welcome a baker or likewise who could share with us his/her experience with baking with allergy friendly ingredients.
