    PLEASE READ THIS CAREFULLY :)

    WHO DO I NEED: I need 2 (two) handy, independent adults (25 years or older) to help out with carpentry and painting projects. Preferably a well-cooperating couple, or two well-cooperating friends.

    THE DEAL: You can live in my house for a maximum of 14 days (the other 14 days I will have my 3 children here).

    Only 14 days of work require that you are already experienced with carpentry work, painting and such, as I not an expert myself and certainly not able to teach you very much :)

    You will have your own bedroom, and share kitchen, bathroom and living room with me.

    WHO AM I: Karianne Steen, 49 years old, journalist, mother of three, cat owner. I am busy and not so much into a lot of socializing other than around the dinner table and when we work together. But I like to do mountain walks and trips to the swimming pool, if you care to join me :)

    THE HOUSE: A charming, cosy house from 1948, in wonderful surroundings by the ocean and mountains, right beneath the "Svolvaer goat" mountain (Svolværgeita), and in walking distance to the center of Svolvaer.

    I need handy helpers with work experience, who can paint walls and stairs, build stuff, fix electronical stuff such as lamps, and fix other stuff in a 70 year old house. The work must be done nicely, and with care. A sense of aesthetics combined with practical skills is much wanted.
