WELCOME/ VELKOMMEN!

We are Bart 28, Ida 27 and Johan 2. We have a homestead next to the forest and a lake in west coast Norway to which we recently moved about 2 years ago.

We are fully booked until summer, but helpers are wanted from June and onwards. We are looking for people who are interested in woodwork, timber framing, gardening and sustainable living. You dont need any previous experience, but must be prepared for some demanding physical work. We try to make sure that you learn as much as possible and were happy to guide you through all the work you do, as long as your willing to get stuck in!
The work will involve using power tools such as table saws and chainsaws. But dont be scared, well be there to teach you how to use them safely.
Starting from January we have lots of exciting projects coming up, including:

- Building a traditional Norwegian timber frame boathouse
- Harvesting and milling timbers for a timber frame barn
- Restoring and repainting our woode... more inside

We have 5 horses, a property where there is always something that should have been done and the best organic and environment friendly store in town (maybe in the whole country). In winter the most important task is taking care of the horses. This involves feeding and cleaning up after them, which can be hard work if the temperature is low and everything is frozen (they live outside).

We also try to grow a bit of vegetables, but nothing much. Still there is always some gardening to do. There are also numerous smaller and bigger things that always needs fixing so we are open to consider any special skills or interests you might have.

We are a family of three, mother, father and our young son.

We hope to meet some friendly and interesting travelers. Our home is 20 minutes from Trondheim city centre, and if you wish to do some "city activities" that's no problem. You will stay in an separate apartment adjacent to our house.

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 ... more inside

The place don't need people at the moment, as the project has been put on hold.

This is a place where a janitor is needed. Sometimes to fix, and do some sweeping so on and so on. Its under construction, but there is places to sleep and to cook and hang out nicely. Its an experience living like this.There the ocean and a river floating side by this building, got very nice atmosphere in the south of Norway.

If you are an artist of some kind there big rooms to paint something, and other artist to talk to if you do something creative. Maybe you like to write or just having a holiday other then the usual thing. If this sounds appealing, please don hesitate to ask.

Myself work at local elementary school, building my own camper from a small mini van. I am born here, 26 years old Male.

-About us-

Welcome!

Our organization started in 2010 as the realization of a dream: Bringing people back to the basics of life, which inevitably means: Back to Nature! To achieve this, we take people out of their stressful everyday lives by letting them experience and appreciate nature and discover their own place in it.

Our organization consists of a tunnel complex, a pancake house, and a yurt resort in Osa, where it all began.

In early 2014, we took over a hotel. All of this is located on the beautiful Hardanger Fjord of Norway.

Our team is a mix of people who have become friends, while others have become a part of our family…
Our group combines its knowledge, skills, energy and experience to make our dream a success.

Besides our infrastructure, we also run an activity centre, from where we plan and organize guided hikes, workshops, team builds and the rental of bikes, kayaks, rowboats, and so on…
Our wish is to let every guest in the yurt resort, as well the ... more inside
