We have been planning for a while to buy the old church in Vestfossen and turn it into a workshop for Kajakkspesialisten. Now it’s official. Today me and my wife Hanne signed the sales contract.
The plan is to keep the building in it’s original appearance as far as possible, and use it for kayak building, courses and as a base for paddle activity on the water as well. It lies on the top of a hill with a brilliant view over the nearby water from the bell tower. It’s a charming old building made out of timber with plenty of space for all my activities. Access to the water is 200 meters away.
Signing the contract: From left Arne Solberg, churchwarden, Arild Bogen, member of the church counsil, Hanne Wigen Thygesen, my wife and Myself.
And here's a photo of the church:
I'm looking forward to see all old and new friends of traditional kayaking in this beautiful site!
