Fjøsakademiet opened in October 2010 - before it actually had any suitable venue of its own for courses, lectures or other activities. The opening weekend was held in the local community hall and a barn belonging to a kindly neighbour.
Before Fjøsakademiet could start using its current classroom in a renovated first floor flat on the farm, there was an enormous amount of work to be done - so the very first English class was actually held in the main house, and coffee break was taken in the family's private kitchen. In 2011, we decided to renovate and decorate a small flat in the 'second' house on the farmyard.
Many coats of dark paint had to go, along with hardboard nailed at 10 cm intervals over the rather nice, old wooden doors. A new floor was laid and spotlights installed. At last, three bright but cosy new rooms emerged and the first students could take their places in a modern and comfortable classroom.
