This is the Fosen Folk School, an organic folk school in Norway that teaches unique and useful skills like construction. If you’ve ever wanted to learn how to grow your own food, build a tiny house, learn how to build a traditional boat, and other useful skills, please continue.

Students learn about self-sufficiency, organic living, and useful skills like being able to create your own equipment like forging your own knife, making your own sandals, and more. Sounds pretty interesting, doesn’t it? Don’t you wish we learned about all of this stuff in school? Now that would be fun…

    Nice. We need more programs like this to give experience, keep skills alive.
    The log cabin isn’t a tiny home but a summer beach or hunting hut.
    Great boat made how traditional Vikings made them, still good 1k yrs later. The same technics can be used to build a TH roof that looks great.

      I totally agree. So unfortunate that skills like this are not taught early on in school. Things like this should be a big part of growing up, I feel like.

    Nice piece. Also nice to FINALLY see something that isn’t an advert for investment property on Airbnb or that glamping place. Issue 1906 had seven pieces and SIX were from Airbnb or glamping hub. I’m sure the owners will appreciate the improved rental income you’re sending their way.

        …and I apologize for the snarky tone of my earlier post.

          Well, you were only pointing out the truth and I appreciate that.

          I’m doing fewer posts on Airbnb’s etc., just so you know, we don’t get paid for these, the reason we do a lot of them is because there are a lot of them and the owners are eager to share/promote them because it’s their business so it just ends up in my face a lot. Anyways, without your feedback it’d be hard to make things better so thanks again.
