    The cottage is built in 1965 by my late father. It is now taken over by me and since 2014 I have done some "freshen up" and light maintenance work this summer.
    I have had some professionals install new doors, and move some walls slightly between bedrooms.
    Then I have painted the inside of tha cabin. Now I need help to paint the outside and some light maintenance.
    Work schedule is flexible or within a fixed schedule. We'll sort this out together.
    You do not need a driver's license.
    The painting job requires not heavy physical strength, and no previous experience needed.

    THE COTTAGE:
    The cottage will be our home for the main part of your stay. It's sun solar powered. Gas oven in the kitchen, and very cozy over all.
    I have 3 bedrooms in the cottage where you can stay. I can accept up to 2 people but the work load is really only for one person.

    MY HOME:
    Depending on how long you stay, we may also live in between in my home 2 story appartment home.
    Guest room for you. All usual modern fasilities.

    FOOD:
    I will provide foods of course. I am a decent chef. I also hope you may contribute to food making, either on your own or together with me. :)
    I keep a normal, healthy diet.
    If you have special diet I am flexible for this.

    ALLERGIES / PETS:
    I have no allergies. I have a cat at home, but it will not be at the cottage.

    TRANSPORT:
    I have my own car and I can pick you up anywhere in the area. Stavanger airport Sola (SVG), the railway stations or elsewhere in the area.

    LANGUAGE:
    I speak Norwegian and English fluently, and I will be happy to teach you in both languages as part of your stay.

    SIGHTSEEING:
    To make your stay as positive and meaningful as possible I take great pride in fasilitating both your work time and free time as best as possible.
    Your stay may be combined with some sightseeing as this is a very nice area for this, and I know the area well. (Pulpit Rock, Kjerag, Månafossen (water fall), Stavanger, The beaches of Jæren.)
    I am used to hosting people as I am also a member of Couchsurfing.com.

    MY DAY TIME JOB:
    I work in the city council with arts and culture. I also do some graphic design and photography. So I like creative things, and can also show you things in the area in regards to this.

    SOCIAL LIFE:
    I live alone, and at the cottage we'll mainly be alone.
    My mother and sister (and family) lives close to me, and I have also many friends as part of my social network.

    MEANINGFUL COMMUNICATION:
    I am a person who can be very social, but also understand when people need some private time.
    If you want to get in touch with certain networks or people while in Norway I am able to help with this too.

    MY INTERESTS:
    I love to travel and traveled to over 20 countries. Still want to travel more! :)
    I love films. Anything from independent avant garde film to silly comedies.
    Food making. And also to learn about you and what your interests are.
