We are a Norwegian/English family living in the beautiful area of Nesodden outside Oslo. Last summer we moved into a house which needs both maintenance, painting, and cleaning! In addition we have 19 chickens, a cat, two guineapigs, and various plans and projects for the garden and house. We are often quite busy, and would love to have some help with some of these!
DIY and building projects
Creating/ Cooking family meals
Help around the house
If you come and stay with us in this beautiful area near the sea and near Oslo, you can enjoy both nature and city life in Norway. We are often quite busy with work but we will all eat at least one meal together every day, 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 (winter 2020) are:
- Small carpentry projects for the chicken house
- Fitting/building window frames in the cabin (indoor)
- Sewing curtains for the cabin
- Indoor painting
- Shopping and cooking
- Snow removal when necessary
- Sweeping and tidying outside
- Looking after chickens
Our plans may change and workawayers must be willing to do whatever is necessary.
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 and livingroom with a (double) sofa bed, and a very simple bathroom with an incineration toilet. The cabin has no running water, but 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.
We live in a quiet area with lots of nature, but still less than an hour away from the centre of Oslo by public transport, in the form of a 7 minute walk to the bus stop, 21 minutes on the bus, and a 23 minute scenic ferry ride! You can walk along the coast, fish and swim in the sea, and relax in quiet surroundings, or go into Oslo where you can enjoy museums, cinemas, shops, and restaurants.
