    Description

    Update 2021: we are only looking to host someone with fencing and woodwork-skills and/or someone for helping out with our 17month old son, about 4-5 hours daytime. We are hoping to host volunteers that is eager to play with him (giving his mom a chance to get things done around the house and garden) He is running around-very funny guy-- likes music/dancing/books/climbing/cars/building towers.. as 1 year old kids does. Most of all he loves to play outside and beeing with animals.

    (Bought an old farm in lofoten islands (north of norway) and live with the contrasts winter/summer in a village not too far from the citycenter Svolvær.
    we are now making this place into how we dream of living: a good home, the house to be open for good people coming to stay, the farmbuilding for studio/workshops and to keep turkies/ducs/goats/pigs/horses/.. are working on a garden and planting the area with more trees, perennial flowers, vegetable, berries and herbs)

    Echange culturel et opportunités d'apprendre

    This area is known for the northern lights and has people from all over the world visiting wintertime, summertime it's “the place” to watch the evening and midnight sun. the sun in summer can be seen from our house all 24 hours. all year round the nature will 'take your breath away' or maybe 'let you breathe more easily'.
    making varied wonderful nutritious food is essential every day- as is great music, espresso and teas, fireplaces and bonfires, hikes in the mountains- or just calm along the sea, some good wine/beer, being useful, playing with our kids and also a good night sleep.

    Aide

    Looking for 1, maybe 2 persons for an initial period of a couple of weeks. alot more tasks available if it works out. We can host robust, warmhearted and hard working people who are keen to help. it usually works out fine with a "learning by doing" prosess, but carpenters/bricklayers are always wanted- variety of projects underway and in the planning stages.

    The barn needs love and work. Now we are about half way through renovating the house. There's so much to do.. . Work can include carpenting tasks/woodwork, gardening, laying new paths, cooking/cleaning, painting, helping with our two little sons, helping out generally and also do artsy stuff like mosaics and sculpture, or making whatever you get inspired to contribute with

    Hébergement

    a room of your own. some nights should be spent outside just for the beauty of it-under the big sky, by a fire.
    People i dont know stop by regularly to ask if they could please be allowed to put up a tent for some nights- as they ofcourse are welcomed to do- they find this place special, maybe because of the horisont and shoreline and the light
