    We are a small family of three + a dog called Leika. Martin Karl 50, Birita 43 and Jákup 16. In our daily life we live and work in Tórshavn. Martin Karl as vice principal and Birita as schoolteacher. In the summerperiode we move to the small village of Sandoy - Skálavík. In Skálavík we have bought an old building, which we are renovating. The building has been in Birita's family for four generations and has a rich history. The summer of 2018 we opened a café in a part of the building, which will be open this summer too. The rest of the building needs at total renovation - inside and out. We do it as a family project, but could very much need some extra pare of hands with a lot of things.
    At the moment we are building a new building next to the old one, which is for 10 hotelrooms - a small Guest House 😊
    What we need help with at the moment, is to paint the new building outside. Best in May and beginning of June

    In your spare time you can travel in Sandoy or the other islands to see as much as you like. If you like to work longer one day, so you can get more days off to travel, that is fine with us :)

    The Faroes are known for their beautiful mountainous nature, small communities and most friendly inhabitants. The climate presents a most unique experience for travellers. You can experience all seasons in one day. You can experience streams running upwards because of strong winds, Another thing special is the spectacular view of the ocean. Most inhabitants have an oceanview.
