Hei :) WELCOME/ VELKOMMEN!

We are fully booked for until christmas or so but will always need help for winter/ the new year if anyone is planning to travel here at that time.

if Bart has some timber-frames to build next year then we also need somebody especially interested OR experienced in wood work, that can help Bart building timber frames. He needs a strong pair of extra hands (some heavy lifting). It takes about one month to build a building (depending on the size) so only for people that can stick around for a while. :) It will give you some seriously handy skills if you want to build your own house, barn, boat house etc one day..

Other tasks may be making fire wood, or 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 Ida with soap making and packaging, and maybe even selling on markets.

We are Bart 28, Ida 26 and Johan 1. We have a homestead next to the forest and a lake in west coast Norway to which we recently moved about 1,5 years ago.

There will be different jobs that will be needed to be done every now and then such as helping Bart with timber frame building, going to work with him (as a traditional carpenter, working with logs and axes). So somebody with a special interest in or experience with wood work would be a perfect match for us :)

We also prefer people that can work a bit independent when we are busy with the baby or off to work. So a couple or friends that can work together and keep each other company would be great.

We have no fixed amount of hours and two days of. we are very flexible and the days can be chosen according to the weather. we also try to work some together with our helpers. But we prefer helpers that can endure a bit of hard work, as it can be physically heavy sometimes, for example digging or lifting logs with Bart.

We have a 12 month old baby so any helpers coming must like kids! :) He is used to and likes being around people, and we are always happy if you would like to look after him a bit now and then. He loves music, books, vacuum cleaning and being outdoors.

The area is stunning , and there are many activities you´re able to do around here if you´re an adventurous, outdoors type (like us ;). We live 2 minutes from a lake on which we have a rowing boat you´re able to use. There´s also a fjord 10 minutes to the south, where we also have a wooden rowing boat. The community we live in is pretty much surrounded by forests and big hills so plenty of chances for hiking! We can also guide you to what to experience in Norway in general as we have traveled quite a bit in the country.

Bart has experience as both helper and host so we will try and create the most welcoming atmosphere for you, as we ourselves would want it as helpers, and we like to have fun together with our helpers :) We are also social with the neighbour who is a helpx host, and with Ida's family that live close by.

We have mainly a traditional diet. We eat ecological meat from local farms and fish caught from our friends and family when given the chance, but mostly we try to eat our own veggies, and soon eggs. We are passionate about growing and preserving our own food as far as we can.

We have internet you can use, and yo will get your own room with view over the lake.

We will only consider helpers that have read the whole profile and have a special interest for our place and tasks.

Oh, and it rains here. Make sure you have appropriate footwear and clothes. :)

We love to have people from all over the world in our house, and will share with you all we have and all we know.

Look forward to seeing you!

Bart, Ida & Johan
