Through 350 hours of sweat equity, Niela built her home. She especially enjoyed the hours working on the construction site. “I met new people and learned new trades like putting floors down. It was a great experience because I am learning skills that will help me keep up with my house as well.” Niela enjoyed the hands-on work because she got to see her home develop little by little.
“I found it so amazing from beginning to the end. You start by seeing the framework go up, and now I see my home.”
This Saturday at 3pm, Niela and Nylan will turn the key to their home. Just a few days later, Nylan will celebrate his 7th birthday in his new home. “He is very excited, and it makes me really happy and see my son smile,” says Niela. “It warms my heart that I can show him my hard work and dedication. As long as we give hard work and dedication, anything is possible.”
