Looking for helpers interested in remodeling homes. We buy ugly houses and make them pretty. We also need help in and around our own home. Happy to pay for additional hours of work as well. Willing to train anyone who is interested in learning. We ask for 4 hours of help per day, 5 days per week, in exchange for room and board, and then anything over the 4 hours would be paid time.

We ask that you do not prepare raw meat onsite. There are plenty of places to eat meat just 1/2 miles from the property. We are okay with fish and preparing seafood. Also okay for you to buy cooked meat and eat onsite, just no raw/uncooked meat (including raw chicken) products please. We make healthy meals for you while you are here, encourage you to make your own meals as our schedules are very hectic, or help in the kitchen with food prep.

We hope that we can share some culture with you while you are here with us. If you are looking for an American experience, we are truly the melting pot of America. Antonio is 1/2 Spanish and 1/2 Welsh, born in Mexico (1st generation Mexican from Spain). He speaks Spanish and English fluently. Jessica is 1/2 Japanese, 1/2 African American, born in California, speaks English and a little Spanish. We have known each other since 1987 and grew up together in Cupertino, CA. We have traveled the world by bike, train, plane, bus and boat and look forward to traveling more and more. We've also traveled cross the United States by car 14 times.

When you are here you get a nice family, your own room, wifi, food and a ton of new skills to take with you! :)

Take care,
Jessica, Antonio, Sophia and Jessie
