Help me get off-grid and in a solid diy home

Hey there! 

Im the oldest daughter from a offgrid family, we moved to Portugal about 16 months ago and made great progress on building up the place. The whole family got here with the idea of starting a rehabilitation/reintegration centre for those in need of a break or for those who need a moment of growing stronger after an addiction. 

I've put everything I had in this project. But since a few months I had the desperate feeling of needing a place of my own. Dont get me wrong I love my family but there is a moment for everybody that they want to move just a little further away then across the hallway. 
Money wise its just not an option, ive spend all the money I had saved up on paying off the student loan and on helping out with the house and some basic expenses. 

For the past 15 months I've been living in a tent which isn't a real big deal if the tent would have been new and able to handle the real portugees weather. Former winter it started leaking and it felt like I also could just sleep outside because that wouldn't have made a real difference. By now the tent cant handle any water anymore and there is mold everywhere. Its just not healthy anymore. 

Ive been offered a old caravan to live in but it leaks and is about falling apart. So the plan is to tear it apart and reuse the windows and floor since those still are in a good shape. The rest would get to be built up with wood and isolated so it wouldn't get to damp in the winter and not to hot in the summer weather. The rest of the prepares would be making a new bed, kitchen and fireplace, and of course a old fashioned outhouse. A lot of my stuff got lost in the flooding of the rains this year and last year so all of the useful things like mattress, closet and some other minor things would need to be replaced. 

So the real reason I need money is so that I can live in a healthy way in a healthy place and after that I would be able to grow healthy food and some healthy animals (which I already have by the way

If you donate more than €100 a tenth  of it will go to young families who also dont have anything left anymore in the neighbourhood and could use a little financial support.
If you choose to donate over €400  there off will be 20% given to those who need it the most at that time. 
If its more then €700 there will be 30% shared with multiple families.
