  • Description

    Description

    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 two pigeons. You should note that because of the wolf genes the Saarloos Wolfhond is quite skeptical to strangers, and might need some time to trust you. Beside regular house keeping and maintenance, our main focus at the moment are connected to outdoor constructing and gardening.

    We just moved to this new place, 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 close to the airport and 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.

    We can provide bicycles.

    Here are always a lot of tasks to solve, so we can find proper things to do for anyone. First of all we need help for construction of the garden/forrest area, plant production and care, carpentry, painting, housekeeping, animal care and general maintenance.

    NOTE that we both have daytime jobs outside the home, so we depend on that you can work independently (or you might have working hours in the afternoon/evening).

    You can not be allergic to dogs (or to scared of them)
