Since March 2018, Shelterra has worked as the general contractor on the San Juan Community Home Trust's Sun Rise II development. With the aim of creating more affordable housing opportunities for island residents and families, we placed a group of early 20th century houses on new foundations, renovated them, and brought them back to life as beautiful, livable homes.

Ken and his great crew were always ready to advise and accommodate; Ken was clear in his expectations, always courteous, and went out of his way to help us. Would we work with Ken again on a project like this? You bet we would!
