We have a huskyfarm with 27 dogs and we are in the process of rebuilding an apartment for guests, a complete guesthouse and new kennels for the dogs. Here, we need help. For example, work with wood (carpentry), lay tile and paint and all kind of craftmanship. Important!!! craftmanship and/or knowledge with sleddogs/huskies.
Daily tasks such as cleaning the kennels, feeding the dogs, train the dogs, renovate the house, common everyday work have to be made here. Working hours may be different, between 6 to 8 hours daily. One/two days in the week off.

We offer a recreational joint planning sightseeing tours and activities in the area.

Hello! I am restoring and restarting a small old farm on a beautiful island on the south eats coast of Norway. The place is located next to a small road in the forest, about 10 minutes walk from the sea. I'm building a sheep herd with an old style Viking sheep, setting up fences, chopping wood for cooking and heating, making hay, working a vegetable garden, collecting mush rooms, apples (making apple sauce), jam, herbs, wild berries and sea weed. Fixing my old truck, my old tractor, my old boat. Repairing the house, getting used building materials everywhere, renewing my barn to make it an art studio and I want to build a guest cabin close to the main house. Also, I carry out nature management and do ecological research. There's always a lot to do and you can also carry out your own projects over here. Artists are also welcome to work over here :)
There is no strict schedule of activities: I rather have people here doing something they choose and like to do, since there are many di... more inside

Parts of this fall and winter, another helper (girl) and I would like help and company in gardening, house painting, maintaining my boats, daily household like cleaning, and more. Not the least USING the garden, house, boats and the nature on this beautiful shore of The North Sea! :-)

You and the other helper(s) must share one of my two guest rooms some nights, as we host paying tourists etc. too. Therefore new helpers should be female.

My home is on rural Tofterøy island; 40 km south-west of Bergen. Wild and beautiful nature. Great for hiking and sea experiences.
Bus connections to Bergen and the airport (BGO).

The short video below, is from Tofta bay, just beneath my house, and the close surroundings. It shows mainly what we can see from my house and garden.

My work capacity is unfortunately rather low now. I provide the tools and instructions you need, but you’ll be relatively independant in your work. You and the other helper(s) must to a large degree structure yo... more inside

:::update 2017:::
Please read the text from 2016 (below) to get an impression of the project. And please note the following update:
Now in october 2017 we are taking care of an old timberlog barn!
:::::::


A 300-year old timberhouse in good condition is threatened to be destroyed. We have started preperations to move it to another place to rescue this nice culutural heritage building.
I am a building engineer specialized in old buildings. I want to restore this house, which I do in my spare time and holidays for the sake of the house.
Working with this house is fun because you learn so much about how they built wooden houses in former times. And of course it is hard work.
This 'work away' is for people who want to get to know timber houses „from the inside“, who are interested in wood works.
No experience is necessary but of course the help craves a bit body power, and it is really helpful if you have had a hammer in your hands before and are not afraid of going onto a la... more inside

Hei :)

We are fully booked and can't host until february 2018

WELCOME/ VELKOMMEN! especially if you feel called to learn how to build a timber frame.Bart has ongoing projects this autumn. so if you think you can manage lifting heavy logs, and want to learn how to work with an axe, and other traditional hand tools and powertools, then don´t hesitate to contact us. (take into account that this can be hard long days of physical labour, but you get a precious skill in return) we also prefer people that can stay over a longer period of time to see the whole process.

but if that doesn't´ts sound like your thing, then we also need help with firewood, taking care of the chickens, making flower beds, and of course some work with the vegetable garden. Cooking is also always appreciated.



Other tasks may be making wood plugs for timber-frames and other small woodwork jobs like tool handle making/repair etc... You can learn how to carve your own spoon..

You can also join Id... more inside
