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 activities at home is connected to gardening and dogs.
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. NOTE; we also have another house and garden that we are preparing for sale, so plenty of things to do there as well.
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, and often we have a spare car for shorter trips (maximum 10 km from our place, or longer by agreement) For the use of the car you only cover for fuel and road tolls.
Cooking / shopping
Help in 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.
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.
