I’m not sure how to start this off. So.. I’m Sam, a veteran and a person used to surviving on little. And I’ve come to a point in life where it’s no longer “Just me”. My gal (Who will be moving down here soon), my cat, and my parents are a part of my life now so I’ve been struggling care for this “Home” I took over.
This “Home” is a trailer, 1980’s model, doublewide. It belonged to my Step-father, and since he fell ill several years ago (Heart Attack with an onset of RA), he was unable to maintain it.
I’ll be blunt, it’s a mess. The floors are buckling, the electrical (While I got it up and running) needs an overhaul, and there’s holes where rodents can get in. It’s a roof over my head, but it feels like being a squatters in a warehouse. For the past year I’ve put a majority of my money into it, though it’s not enough. Plywood sheets that are 1/2 Inch are up to 50 USD now where I am.
After bills, I have enough for some groceries and gas, then very little for myself which either gets spent on something needed for the trailer, or for replacing hygenic supplies.
And so… I’m reaching out, asking others for help. I can’t do this project alone due to the financial undertaking it is for me, and I want to make this a real home to live in till I’m 6 feet under. Moving isn’t an option as that’ll just be more expensive.
