Update 2021: we are looking to host someone with woodwork-skills and/or someone for helping out with our 2 sons about 4-5 hours daytime. We are hoping to host volunteers that is eager to play with them (they are 2 and 4 years old, not shy at all, they like music/dancing/books/climbing/cars or all thing with wheels/building towers/lego/going to the beach/hikes/going for a ride on the bike/skiis/learning new songs, with enthusiasm/ jigzaw- pussels/running,, just playing around the house or outside)...
Bought an old farm in lofoten islands (north of norway) and live with the contrasts winter/summer in a village not too far from the citycenter Svolvær.
we are now making this place into how we dream of living: a good home, the house to be open for good people coming to stay, the farmbuilding for studio/workshops and to keep turkies/ducs/goats/pigs/horses/.. are working on a garden and planting the area with more trees, perennial flowers, vegetable, berries and herbs)
DIY and building projects
Babysitting and creative play
Creating/ Cooking family meals
Help around the house
This area is known for the northern lights and has people from all over the world visiting wintertime, summertime it's “the place” to watch the evening and midnight sun. the sun in summer can be seen from our house all 24 hours. all year round the nature will 'take your breath away' or maybe 'let you breathe more easily'.
making varied wonderful nutritious food is essential every day- as is great music, espresso and teas, fireplaces and bonfires, hikes in the mountains- or just calm along the sea, some good wine/beer, being useful, playing with the kids and also a good night sleep.
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
Looking for 1, or one couple for an initial period of a week. alot more tasks available if it works out. We can host robust, warmhearted and hard working people who are keen to help. it usually works out fine with a "learning by doing" prosess, but carpenters/bricklayers are always wanted- variety of projects underway and in the planning stages.
The barn needs love and work. Now we are about half way through renovating the house. There's so much to do.. . Work can include carpenting tasks/woodwork, gardening, laying new paths, cooking/cleaning, painting, helping with our two sons, helping out generally and also do artsy stuff like mosaics and sculpture, or making whatever you get inspired to contribute with
a room of your own. some nights should be spent outside just for the beauty of it-under the big sky, by a fire.
People i dont know stop by regularly to ask if they could please be allowed to put up a tent for some nights- as they ofcourse are welcomed to do- they find this place special, maybe because of the horisont and shoreline and the light
one thing: don't mind if you smoke
another thing: would love to try learn skills volunteers bring- also such as languages, arts and all crafts, tango or actually every known dance, knowledge in nature, food and cooking....
