We were able to get a little land and 12x24 cabin which together just cost a months rent to start us. We have been struggling to get as much done before winter and some folks have already started to help. We have insulation on the walls but still need to panel the walls and ceiling. We have a very thin rug on the floor that doesn’t do much for the cold. We were able to get some warm clothing as we had nothing. We were given a nice electric blanket and it is so nice at night. We have a little electric heater which helps some. Our biggest issue is water everything is done out of buckets and to get water at an affordable rate we have to travel 50 miles round trip and we can only get 30 gallons at a time. We have a 275 gal tank but no way to get water to it. So our biggest cost is going to be a well. Unfortunately we brought debt with us that still has to be paid if we could get that paid off then we could manage on our social security. There is so much to be done eventually we’ll have to get a septic system but till then we manage. I’m disabled and my husband has already had 1 heart attack and the stress is weighing us down but we are so thankful to those who have reached out to us y’all have been a big blessing. Our hope and prayer is that more good folks can help a little a lot doesn’t matter cuz we know it comes from the heart. God bless and thank you
