Hello everyone. I was given a home by my late grandmother as a part of her will. I am very grateful since my wife and I have two children and needed a home of our own. However, we have been met with many hardships. The house is actual a double wide trailer that was put on a foundation. It is also 30 years and in need of a lot of repairs. There are holes in the drywall, plumbing leaks, the roof has never been replaced, and 30 years of my late grandparents stuff that needs to go. We got rid of a lot of things. But there is still much more and we just dont make enough money to get things that need to be done finished. I know its going to take a lot of money for all these things. Right now my primary focus is getting all the trash and left over things out of the house and to the dump. I have a friend with a truck and dump trailer. I just need help with dump fees. Which are not too bad around here. Maybe 70 to 80 dollars a load. After that, I want to work on getting all the plumbing leaks fixed and drywall repaired. Then move on to the roof. After that its mostly cosmetics like siding and landscaping. Something that can be improved over more time.
Now I mentioned a car in the title. Right now, my wife and I have one car. And as luck would have it, the starter went out. Fortunately, a friend is letting us use his spare truck. But Im sure he would not like that to be a long term solution. Starters arent too bad, around 170 dollars and I can do the replacement myself.
We could really use the extra help. We have both reached out to our families and attempted loans. However, we have been unsuccessful on both fronts. Neither of us has very good credit. But we are fighting hard to work on it. If you are able and willing to help by sharing this or donating, we would be eternally grateful for everything.
I am trying to upload pictures and am having a couple of issues. I will work to get that fix and see if the site admins can help.
