  • Description


    We are working on details in the house. You can join us and still help us with details about painting, sanding and overall details.

    Hello there!! My name is Nadya, I have two active boys, Aukai 10 and Kalani 8. We are a family of 3 that enjoy the simple life, gardening, going to the beach and play around with friends. I have a small business making natural sunblocks and I also work with a non-profit organization that rescues abandoned properties.

    We live in San Juan, the capital of Puerto Rico, especifically around the Calle Loíza, Santurce area. The house 🏡we need help with was the same house my greatgrandparents moved to, from the country to the city, in the 40's.

    It's a wooden house that I just changed the wooden roof of. Now I need help with the finishing details like the bathroom and kitchen.

    We hope someone feels motivated to join us and help us finish this project! Our house is blocks away from a beautiful beach, pubs, restaurants and a very nice atmosphere. ✨🌴🍃🏄🍻
