We are a couple around 70 years. We have had our alternative lifestyle for many years.
We live on a small farm, in the middle of Norway, not fare away from the town Steinkjer. The farm has a total of 300 acres. We have no animals.
Most of the country is a wooded area, but we have an area of about 15 acres where we have a garden / park.
The farmhouse on the farm is used for therapy, courses, meetings and accommodation.
We live in our own private house nearby.
Here are also other small houses, and we have a boathouse at the waterfront. We have a motor boat that you can use for trips in the fjord.
We attach great importance to colors and their importance to us humans, which is why we have established our place (Color-pile).
There is a lot of chores to do during the summer, and our summer is short ...
Most of the help is gardening, so we prefer people with gardening experience. We also make a lot of firewood for upcoming winters. The houses need maintenance, so there is always paint projects to do.

Help around the house
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
In return for your help, you get the opportunity to learn some of the Norwegian language. You get work experience in inspiring and colourful surroundings, see parts of our district and learn something about our culture. We live in a beautiful landscape with excellent opportunities for recreational activities in nature.
As a workawayer by us we like you to be openminded, honest, have a good health, be practical and patient.
Most of the help is outdoor in all types of weather.
To help us can sometimes be physically demanding, while other times we need to be patient.
And every summer we make firewood for coming winters.
Painting houses, and other stuff, is something that belongs to the summer activities.
Planting trees and bushes, and weeding, is always relevant. So it is a plus if you have experience of gardening.
We want you to be with us for at least a couple of weeks, so we can get to know each other.
You get your own room in the farmhouse. The house has a kitchen, living room and bathroom on the first floor.
At second floor Marit has her therapy room (in daily use), and there are also guest rooms there. (Your room too)
You can use the whashing machine in the basement.
You have food for breakfast where you are staying, and you get lunch and dinner everyday together with us in our house. All food is free.
