  • Description


    We are a family of four; Daniel 39, Elise 36, Robert 9 and Jenny 4, and our chickens. We live in the middle of Norway, near the coast. We run our own construction company together and Elise is also teaching cooking and baking online.

    We live in a quiet neighborhood in walking distance to the community center, and have a big garden where the chickens live their best days. We love to be outdoors, knit, cook, read books, look into the fire, wood work, bake sourdough, work out, meet new people, listen to music and play Playstation. We also do voluntary work with The Norwegian Trekking Association (DNT).

    Since we have a lot going on with work and kids, there is always need for more help! We need help with daily routines both inside and outside the house, and in the garden. You will, for the most time, work alone since we have work during the daytime on weekdays. So this is a suitable place for a couple or two friends, so you have each others company. As a workaway you will stay in our guesthouse and have your own space.

    We eat mostly homecooked food and spend a lot of time in the kitchen cooking and baking. We eat meat, fish, eggs and dairy every day, so if you are a vegan/vegetarian this might not be the place for you.

    Staying with us will give you a lot of time to enjoy the Norwegian nature as we live close both to the mountains and the fjord.

    We love to meet new people, but since we run our own companies there is not much time for travelling.
