Brown Family Fire Recovery Fund
After our house burned down we had to accept help from friends, family, and neighbors, which was very difficult for Jennifer, Aaron, and myself. We are each very independent, and while we are all willing to do things to help others, accepting help was just not easy for us. And now we find ourselves back in the same place of needing help for something that seems impossible, and relying on our family, friends, and neighbors for it. Which gets us to now, October 2016 is the 7th month we've been trying to get a construction loan to finish building our home since the lien was filed, and the 10th since we started rebuilding. Our insurance policy times out 2 years after the claim was initiated, so if we can't finish building our new home by September 2017 we will forfeit the recoverable depreciation which totals about $69,000.
All of these problems are because a contractor didn't pay his bills, and I told the bank about it. It's unbelievable that construction law dictates that we can not sue for punitive damage when the result of this contractors actions cost us the ability to get a construction loan and finish building our home.
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts to those who finds it in their heart to help us. We would greatly appreciate if you would share our story with everyone you know, and likewise ask them to share it as well.
