    Description

    Me and my cat have hoved into this beautiful old house and have many ideas how to make it even more beautiful.
    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 make a new kitchen an a new bathroom.
    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.

    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.
    We would also like to make a new bathroom 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. I 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 summer time).

    Accommodation

    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.
    I like to share the meals so we prefer to eat all together.

    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.
