  • Description


    Hey, my name is Bjørn. I live on a small farm from 1850 with my cute and lovely cat Bonus.
    I do not run this farm as my day job, and the projects I need help with are not part of normal farm operations.

    I'm a handyman with many practical skills, and I run my own little company.
    I’m going to be busy at work some days, but most days I will be home to assist and work with you on the projects.

    I hope to get hjelp with tidying up the barn, in the garage and around the farm.
    Carpenting inside and outside the barn.
    Make a door for the garage. Lawnmowing. Cleaning the house.
    Painting walls and ceiling inside the house. Build a small woodshed with doors. Buid a sauna with a fireplace + a big bath tub. Build a greenhouse. Planting and maintaining a nice kitchen garden. Weed flower beds.
    Shoveling snow around the yard in the winter.

    I also brew beer from time to time and I could need some assistance around the brewday.
    Cut down trees in the forest and making firewood for the future is another ongoing task.
    Maybe you have car mecanic skills? I have several cars that need some repairing.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    I am very willing and happy to share my knowledge, whatever it may be.
    I love to make electronic music and practice DJ'ing, and I like to play different boardgames.
    There might be several opportunities to join me on trips, may it be by car, a bicycle ride, rollerblades, crosscountry skiing, snowkiting, mushroom hunting, electronica parties, etc.

    Possibilities for learning a list of practical skills, like welding and carpenting, three-work, masonry, metal-work, plumbing and many others.

    I also look forward to learn from my workawayers, whether it's music production, art projects, or learning some new practical skills.
