We are two men living on the countryside just outside Oslo, the capital of Norway. Here we live together with our three dogs (one German Shepard and two Saarloos Wolfhond) and some pigeons.
We are first of all looking for some practical help for outdoor tasks. Our main focus at the moment are connected to constructing, painting and gardening. Therefor we need persons that:
- Have practical skills/experience (constructions, painting, gardening)
- Have physical strength to work with tasks as mentioned above
- Are able to solve problems and work independently
We just moved to this house, so for the moment there are plenty of tasks to be solved both in- and outdoors. We are renovating some parts of the house and we are about to construct a new garden.
Our home has a great location rather close to city life, at the same time we are at the countryside with a spectacular wildlife and view over the delta with an amazing number of bird and fish species. The house is located about 25 minutes from Oslo and 40 minutes from Oslo airport, Gardermoen.
I addition we have just bought a house at the countryside in northern Denmark, where we also could need some helping hands.
DIY and building projects
Help around the house
At our place you can learn about traditional food and cooking as well as Norwegian traditions and language. As we live in a nature reserve it is possible to learn about of wetland flora and fauna. Oslo can provide access to a wide range of cultural arrangements and exhibitions.
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
Here are always a lot of tasks to solve. First of all we need help for construction and the gardening. This could include; plant production and care, renovation, carpentry, painting and general maintenance.
NOTE that we both have daytime jobs outside the home, so we depend on that you can work independently.
You can not be allergic to dogs - or to scared of them ;)
You will have your private room outside or inside the main house, with full access to the facilities in the main house. Your private room has WiFi, bed or sleeping sofa and TV (the room outside the main house also have cold/hot water - shower and toilet is in the main house)
Smoking only allowed outdoors.
To get here you can come by car, train or bus. With some planning we will normally be able to pick you up at the train station. There are easy access to Oslo by public transport (bus and/or train).
