We are a family of four (parents 32 yrs, kids 5 yrs and 3 yrs) + big dog and pet rats. We are looking for a helper to stay with us at our home. We have a special task for someone who has some experience in carpentry or joinery: to build a custom bookshelf. It doesn't have to be fancy but it must fit in the oddly shaped space. We have a good set of (hand)tools.

In addition, you might have to do some gardening or make some firewood. We are not expecting you to cook or to take care of the pets or kids. We like to spend some time at the summer cottage and meet relatives in Helsinki and in Lovisa, so you are welcome to follow along if you wish.

Plus sides:
- 5 hours of work per day, two days off.
- We will give you free language lessons (Finnish or Swedish), if you wish.
- We speak fluent English and Swedish, some Russian and French. The kids speak only Finnish and Swedish.
- Our home is only 1 hr away from Helsinki, so you can take the train and visit the capital.
- We li... more inside

We run an internship program for people interested in working with huskies in a semi-professional capacity. In other words, we don't just take people as volunteers and expect them to poop. Rather, we have a systematic training system in place which is an extension of the system in place for paying clients who want to participate in the husky lifestyle for short periods of time.

Interns learn about and participate in the daily and weekly tasks that need to be completed on the farm. The first week is a bit of a baptism of fire guided by a daily mentor in which there is complete immersion into every aspect of life here.

The degree to which people can participate in the range of roles available on the farm depends on the length of their stay, their expertise coming in, and the level of interest in the various roles.

Duties change with the seasons from one-on-one dog training and construction / maintenance work in the summer, to dog-conditioning and safari preparation work in... more inside

Hi! Huskies, pets and 2 kids miss a friend to take care and play with them in Lapland very North Finland. Our daughter is 6 years old and our son 2 years old.

Help is needed feeding and cleaning animals, training and helping with huskies, helping with customers (at winter time), and taking care kids (usually play, play and play again :) ). If you want, you can take part of housework like cooking or gardening.

Living in the house, own room. No smoking or drugs. Minimum time should be one month, two months is very nice. We had our first helper in the spring 2017 and we have had many great experiences with all our helpers. You can read more about us in our couchsurfing profile (couchsurfing.com, Liisa Arpiainen, Muonio).

We have space from the beginning of September 2018. Please ask more! Welcome to be a part of our family! Liisa and family

We are Marja (finnish sign language interpreter, homemom, from Finland) and Mick (carpenter, from Ireland) and we have two small kids Leo (born 2014) and Luna (born 2016). We live in the countryside in North Karelia 20 km from Joensuu center.

Our project is to build a small straw bale round house to be our home. We have decided to settle down in Finland and after a few years of thinking we decided to build our own home instead of buying an old house. After that decision was made we bought 5 hectares of land in December 2016. We bought it very close (500m) from where we live now and also close to an organic farm Pikkunuppu where Marja has grown up.

We have now cleared the road to the house, gotten building permission and had the trees cut to boards for the house. After we got the building permission we cleared the building plot from trees and we did a natural stone foundation. The foundation of the house is ready as is the foundation for the chimney. This year 2018 is the tim... more inside

Hello! We are a thirty-year-old married couple whose firstborn son was born last year in September. We have been entrepreneurs in our dairy farm for just over a year (34 cows, calves, and young cattle, so a little over 60 head to feed everyday) which offers us a living. Before Mikko's parents retired and we started to hold this farm, we studied (for example, tourism and catering, natural resources and construction), were in paid employment and traveled. We also have 2 dogs and 3 cats, who live inside with us.

Our farm is located in Eastern Finland a small village called Tohmajärvi (fewer than 5000 people) not far from the Russian border. The closest shops are seventeen kilometers away, while Joensuu, the closest bigger city, is 72 km away (nearest airport), the nearest train station is at Kitee about 30 km away. There isn't really public transportation, but we will take you to places every now and then, if needed.

Here, we spend the days quickly in the work of the farm, but w... more inside

After being a helper myself I would like to host a helper at my summer cottage.
Would like to have some help with garden, and with fire wood.
For a helper we could agree about 4 hours work 5 days a week. You could stay few days or few weeks.
Simple food. I don't eat meat, but you can.

My cottage is very primitive, no running water, outside toilet, solar panels for electricity. I do have a sauna. And wifi!
There is a small guest cottage where a helper could stay, IF I dont have paying quests. It has a fire place for heating. If I have quests, helper can sleep in my kitchen cottage, or in my cottage. All cottages are very small!
I have an apartment in Espoo (with electricity and running water!=) ), 20 km from the center of Helsinki. Helper can stay there partly.

Siuntio village, very small with a shop, farmacy etc., is 6 km away, but close to my cottage there is a spa hotel with swimming pool.
Cottage is by the lake and I have a canoe and a bicycle. I dont have a p... more inside
