I Just Want a Kitchen!
On March 19, 2012, our home was destroyed by a tornado. Our homeowners insurance company did not pay because we did not have our ceilings sheetrocked yet (we were finishing up construction). We are retired and do not have income to finish this house. We have walls and a roof and a working bathroom ... but no kitchen. A group of people donated a refrigerator to us (MANY thanks!) and we saved up and got a stove, but we still do not have a kitchen sink (we wash dishes in the bathroom), nor any cabinets or counters (we have folding tables).
We just need enough to finish the kitchen and maybe some sheetrock (House Two doesn't have sheetrock on the ceilings either!). We can wait on flooring and finish work, we just have been living with no kitchen for so long that we are going crazy.
We appreciate, beyond words, any help you are able to give.
We still do not have a kitchen or ceilings.
I'm bartering web-building skills for the AC/Furnace install some time this fall.
Not much else has changed -- just keeping everyone updated.
I know many people don't really use their kitchens, but we do! We both cook at home and couldn't afford to eat out all the time anyway. I cannot believe we have been living like this for three years now!
Thank you to all those who have donated! I weep with every dollar! I thank those who would LIKE to help but are dealing with their own problems, as well. I know the feeling.
Thank you for reading.
