The hurricane is not what really flooded us, it was North Carolina who got the brunt of the storm; therefore, causing them to open their dams, which in turn flooded Conway, SC AND our house. We have known for days, but we are NOT people that ask for help. The "ballpark" figure today was $20,000 for all repairs. Some of you might be unaware, but Reese joined the United States Air Force in January 2018 . We moved to Texas to join him in tech school in June 2018 and I have been working on base PT since August. Since we rented out our home that we have owned for 13 years for the past 3 months, we do NOT qualify for FEMA, only a small business loan through them...which is still pending. We also do not carry flood insurance because the house has never been close to being flooded in our 13 years living in it or the 21 years it has been there. We have survived the "300 year flood" and Hurricane Matthew without the water being anywhere near our house. We are grateful that we have been in Texas for the duration of this event since we are not displaced; however, it makes everything else more challenging. We also found out today that the sewage backed up so there is a TON of bacteria (aka...doo doo) in the water. We've always been the DIY'ers, never took out a home equity loan, second mortgage, refinanced our 30 year mortgage or anything to remodel the entire house over the years. We've  worked hard for all of it and paid for it all in cash, but this we cannot. 

WE ARE ASKING FOR ANY HELP POSSIBLE. EVEN A $4 DONATION WILL BUY A BAG OF MULCH. AS A FAMILY, WE THANK YOU IN ADVANCE AND APPRECIATE ANY HELP YOU CAN OFFER. WE WILL UPDATE AS WE GET UPDATES. 

All donations will go directly towards renovating our home in Conway, SC. It will be used towards the purchase of new flooring, cabinetry, sheetrock, etc. 

We are in the process of moving from TX to Little Rock on 10/24/18, but hope to come back to SC on 10/27/18 through a Recruiter Assistance Program (essentially Reese has to work for the recruiter in myrtle beach for 12 days, but they do not pay for transportation to Myrtle Beach) to help by getting our hands dirty, paint paint paint and paint more, assist in any way possible and save some money. 

We are trying to salvage anything possible...some appliances, door knobs, door handles and anything else over the coming days. Everything from the chair rail down will have to be removed. Tubs will have to be gutted, the entire kitchen, flooring, etc.

I have included some before and after photos.
