    Hi!

    UPDATE: We at at this moment looking for a creative and kind woman who is able to do homeschooling with the kids! This will be for about 5 hours a day. Send us a message and we will talk! :)


    We are a family living in the beautiful Norwegian countryside. On a little over a acre we have a small fruit-orchard, a view over the neighbors fields, endless woods in our backyard and a tiny-house in the making. We are homeschoolers and we love to travel and live amongst the locals wherever we go. We believe that our kids will benefit from having friends from all over the world!

    Mama in the family is an artist who loves her man, her friends and her kiddos! Daddy has worked his own business the last years, he likes to play, hike and do Capoeira. Kiddos are 11 and 7, and loves to play the piano, have fun, work and earn money, learn about new things and meet new fellow souls from other parts of the world! We also have a Siberian Husky, the nicest dog you will ever meet!

    We are looking for one person to help around the house, mainly with cooking dinner daily. Other jobs around the house and garden will also be part of your stay.
    We love plantbased food, so preparing meals each day will give mama time to focus on her kiddos, her business and her art.
    Also cleaning, painting, weeding and other tasks may be on the program for our volunteer/ new family-friend! (Alternatively we can welcome a person who has great carpentry-skills and are able to work independently as we have a building in our yard that needs construction-work.)

    The person we welcome has to be flexible and open to different tasks, depending on what needs to be done that day.

    We would love to bring you along for our activities and to experience the Norwegian culture!

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We live in an area full of culture in the south-east of Norway with a nice warm climate during summer, and snow during winter. We live close to the place where the vikings first settled! We just moved here, and are still exploring and would love to bring you along for adventure!
    We live in the countryside, but within 30 minutes from 4 small/medium sized cities, and about 15 minutes to nearest shopping, library etc.
    Our kids love to help and they will be happy to teach you the Norwegian language while you are here!
    Our life is quite peaceful, but also a lot going on often and you will be part of our dynamic lifestyle!
    We would love for you to be a part of our outdoor-activities as we are surrounded by beautiful nature!

    We are looking for a kind, open, flexible person who are happy to help with cooking dinner and lunch daily. Tasks as weeding, painting, cleaning, helping with projects outdoors and indoors as they come up, may also be part of the job. Other tasks may arise with time, as we are an ever evolving family :)
    Mama will be there with the kiddos. Our children has learned to respect others and it is a requirement that we welcome someone who is genuinely kind to our kiddos.
    Mama might also need an extra pair of hands while she is out and about doing errands and exploring.
    The work will be up to 5 hours pr. day, depending on what is going on that day, and 5 days a week. We are happy to bring you along for our activities or suggest activities and places to visit!

    Some days we dont work at all, we go with the flow :)
    It is important that you clean up after yourself after dinner etc. and keep your place and the bathroom tidy and clean and that you are a non-smoker.

    Flexibility is appreciated as we have a spur of the moment-lifestyle :)
    Looking forwards to sharing our life, our place, culture and our activities with you and getting to know you!

    We have a newly renovated downstairs apartment available, with its own kitchen, bathroom and living room. as long as this is available, you are welcome to use it. If this is not available, we have a lovely big room in the main house for you. This room is close to the bathroom and has a view over the fields. We eat mostly plantbased and organic, but just tell us what you like and I'm sure we will work something out.
