The Plan: Over a year ago, we set our intention toward building a Healing Center on the land next to our home, in order to provide a more suitable space for Eric to continue to help people relieve themselves of their pain. (see below for more info)
As the dream grew, so grew the structure! And so did plans for workshops, classes, ceremonies, as well as an office for Trudi to offer counseling, and possibly, small weddings.
We put in our money: Garnered from equity in our home ($115k), money from beloved family ($25k). Eric has rekindled his carpentry past, bringing great amounts of sweat equity to the project. We have saved well over $50k through his labor.
Great progress has been made! The Universe has been aligning all the way, confirming this is the correct course of action. We're going to make more progress. We have enough money to get through drywall.
Since it will be open to the public, we have been required to build in compliance with commercial building codes. This has made every step more complicated and expensive than we initially budgeted for.
Done so far:
Foundation, framing, timbers in the ceremony/class room, roofing, siding, exterior windows, and doors, exterior paint, all the rough-ins of plumbing, heating and electrical and insulation.
CALLING ALL ANGELS!
We need some help getting to the finish line: Alas, as we look ahead, we see our funds will fall short. We are asking for your financial assistance to bring our project to completion. We need your help.
Certificate of Occupancy is the Goal:
$27k can get us there!
We need to complete: Driveway for wheelchair accessibility, modest floor coverings, electrical utilities hookup, light fixtures, the last of the structural steel in the large office and ceremony room, exterior trenching and piping, wheelchair accessible bathroom, trim, paint, and final grading with wildflowers and blooming trees in the meadow.
Also, we are asking the universe for one sweet benefactor to help us purchase the Skylight, a glass spire, a crowning beacon that will draw in those who need Eric’s healing touch, Trudi’s kind words, or use of a beautiful Healing Space for their celebrations and teachings.Thank you for considering our project, and for helping us make the world a better place.
In love and gratitude,
Eric & Trudi Cooper
