  • Description


    Beautiful Telemark region in Norway.

    We decided to rejoin the family concept of staying generations together. We moved to a farm that has been empty for around 30y.
    We want to turn it into a self suistainable place.
    Clean water and food.
    A space for different creative personal expressions.
    And later on open up for events with peoples in search of a deeper Natural experience.
    A place to breathe.

    Our family has 5 humans: grandmother and mother, brother and sister and a precious girl 4 years old that are with me daily as her mam.
    A friend just moved into the nabo house.
    So far the animal family holds one dog and a cat.

    If there are families with child interested to come it is very welcome. Our Bjørk would Love playmates and to continue practicing English.

    Contact me, Ane, if this resonates with You :)

    The main projects for the moment where we need support is wood building. We have our own saw to make timber now, so we take out big trees from our forest for the creations needed.
    Some is to finish the total restoration of the existing buildings and build two new. One for the saw to operate in also during winter and a big octagon green house we will create with wood and windows.

    We have many different things to do here. Even if wood building is the main focus days might vary as ours do. Tasks as create water systems, create a outdoor training space in the forest and trees for all ages could be happening when You are here as we have a dynamic approach to the Life here.

    If You want to join me sometimes in the garden with herbs and vegetables you can. Collecting wild food and herbs.
    Create more nice rooms to enjoy outside.

    Play with my girl so I can have my hands free once in a while if trust is there. Speak another language with her and me.

    Lots of nice Nature and some wildlife to enjoy. We have a Raven family living straight up from the wooden cabin that loves playing above us.
