  • Description

    Description

    We are a Norwegian/English family living in the beautiful area of Nesodden outside Oslo. The summer before last we moved into a house which needs both maintenance, painting, and cleaning! In addition we have 18 chickens, 4 cats, 1 guineapig, and many plans and projects in the house and garden. We are often quite busy, and would love to have some help with some of these!

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We are often quite busy with work but we will eat some meals together (mainly lunch), and maybe play some board games, which will give us a chance to get to know each other and learn about each others' cultures.

    Types of work that we need help with at the moment (autumn 2021) are:
    - Indoor maintenance (painting, particularly ceilings)
    - Cleaning
    - Looking after chickens
    - Other practical jobs around the house

    Our plans may change and workawayers must be willing to do whatever is necessary.

  • Accommodation

    Accommodation

    You will live in a small cabin in our garden, a few meters from our main house. There is a kitchen with a fridge and cooker, a bedroom with two beds as well as a livingroom with a sofa that can be transformed into a (double) bed, and a very simple bathroom with an incineration toilet. There is no running water in the cabin at the moment, but drinking water will be available and you can use the shower and washing machine in the main house at times that we agree upon. You will have space to yourself to enjoy your spare time.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    You can walk along the coast or in the forest, and relax in quiet surroundings, or you can hop on a bus and a scenic boat trip to visit the city of Oslo. Nesodden offers the best of both worlds!
