Castillo Family

Castillo Family

I have lived in my house since 2002. Carlos and I met at the West Side Market when I would buy organic vegetables from his stand while on my lunch hour. Carlos is from Peru and was studying to be a nurse because he loves helping people. We were married in 2004 and we both really love the house and neighborhood. We are 20 houses from Lake Erie and we have a fabulous beach club. The house has a lot of character and charm, but is badly in need of updating. We spent quite a bit of money on things like waterproofing, and a new roof, driveway, and windows, but didn’t do much in the way of remodeling. A couple of years ago I decided to open a doggy day care business and spent all of my time and money getting it going. I left a good paying job to start the business in 2013, but unfortunately it failed. Luckily I was able to find another job, and Carlos is working as a nurse in a hospital, but we are still trying to get back on our feet. Thank you Fix It & Finish It for giving us a new office to inspire us to pursue our dream of having a pet business. We are both pet lovers and hope to open an internet-based business to promote pet welfare.
