  • Description

    Description

    We are two friends that have decided to live together. We moved into this beautiful old house and now we have many ideas how to make it our own space.
    The house was built in 1909 and after the second world war it was a place were women came to relax, play music, sing, dance and spend a good time together.
    It is a wonderful place, with an amazing view of the fjord and a big winter garden to gather around.
    Besides this big house there is a small cottage that we would like to rebuild. We would like to construct a terrace and maybe make the rooms bigger.
    We enjoy being with people from all over the world and having meetings with our friends in the home that we have. If you looking for a Workoway place to stay and you want to come immediately please leave a message, and we can see if we have a room for you.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We speak English so if you need to practice the language we can help you with that. We are also very interested in music, so we are always surrounded by musicians and we usually attend to jazz sessions.
    Besides, we can offer some kayak and canoe training. Also massage, reflexology and Yoga classes.

    We just moved to our house and we are reconstructing our beautiful place. We would like to construct a concrete / siporex kitchen. On the outside, we would like to build a brick wall and extend a room in a small house close to the main one. We would also like to set a kitchen and make some other constructions in the main place.
    We are looking for people that are interested in helping us and have the skills for construction. It would be better if you have some experience in building techniques. We mostly use wood for the construction so it will be needed knowledge about carpentry as well. Electricians and plumbers are also most welcome to come.
    On the other hand, we need some people that like and know about gardening.(in the sommer time)

    You will have a spacious room for yourself. The house has different spaces with big windows where you can sit, relax and enjoy the view of Oslofjord and the winter garden. We will share the common spaces as the kitchen, the bathroom, the living room and the terrace.
    We like to share the meals so we prefer to eat all together.

    What else ...

    We live in Svestad at Nesodden, very near to the capital. To get there, you take a bus for 20 min. and then, a 20 minutes boat trip to Oslo Sentrum.
    Some evenings we will have some jam and music sessions that you can attend with us.
    You can also do some fishing, kayaking and canoeing in Oslofjord that is only a minute away from our home.
    Walking in the forest is also possible.
