  • Description


    We want to get some help with maintenance in our home in an older house in Salhus, about 20 km outside the city of Bergen, on the west coast of Norway.
    We are in the process of makeing a room in the basement in our house and we want help with building the room. Laying the floor, carpentry and painting.
    Cleaning up the garden and various maintenance and painting outside are things we need help with when spring comes and the weather turns to work outside.
    But we also have an old farm on an island not too far away, so there is a possibility that you can join us on a trip out there to. We will have people on workaway there also later this year.
    In Salhus, you get a small room at the back of the house with a bathroom right next to it and its own front door.
    We have written that we only have room for one person as it is only a small room with one bed. So it will be a bit cramped, but it is possible that two people can sleep there if a couple wants to come.
    We have cats, so it's fine if you like cats.
    We eat the main meals together, but it is nice if you prepare your own breakfast or evning meal if you are up early in the morning, or late back to the house in the evning.
    You will be served varied Norwegian food, but you are free to cook your own food if you wish.
    We will of course try to cook food that you also like.

    And there is the possibility of fishing.
    Salhus is located on the outskirts of Bergen city, which is the second largest city in Norway.
    So you have the opportunity to see the city if you want.
    Bergen is an old city and therefore a much-visited tourist destination.
    We also have a country house on a private small island (Raunøy) about 1 hour journey from Salhus. We will also have people on workaway there this summer. So there is also the possibility that you can join trips out there.
    There you can experience the fjord, fish, paddle, row, or hike.
