William and Justine Kougl had a devastating fire at their new ranch in montana and lost their house and almost everything in it. They moved away from from most Family and Friends in South Dakota to venture out and try something to help their family and then this happened.  They have two small children, and nothing was salvagable from the diaster, they need help to rebuild their lives right now. They appreciate any and all donations of goods but at the moment monetary donations are most helpful as they don't know what they will be in for a living situation over the next few months. Their insurance coverage will only be enough to cover a portion (1/2) of rebuilding their home due to the age of the house they moved into less then 3 months ago.  Anything donated will help and be very much appreciated.

Hey there everyone, I wanted to send out an update as we are getting so close to having the house completed. There are things left to do (never lacking for a list!)such as flooring, trim, countertops some painting and chinking the inside but we have come so far since last February's mess. We are still in the bunkhouse and are hoping to be living in the new house by the end of January (We promised ourselves we would have the house done in a year - and we are doing pretty good considering everything has been done by us). We want to Thank each and everyone of you for all of the prayers and support over the last year and this was one of the best ways I could think of to reach out to everyone.
We have come so far!
Thank You and Have a Happy New Year!

I wanted to write a post to update everyone that has donated to us. We are using these funds to pay for the roofing on the house we are building ourselves. We are so blessed by everyone's generosity and I wanted to make sure everyone was updated. Here is a picture of the house, it has been a lot of hard work, sweat and a few ouchies along the way but it is progress. We are hoping to be done before Thanksgiving, so we will be just shy of 10 months living in the one room bunkhouse. It is such a humbling experience to lose everything you have and to pick back up and keep trucking. We cannot thank you all enough.

Love,

Justine Kougl & Family

Wow, so it begins! We took some time yesterday after filling in the hole where the old house was, to start planning where to put a new house. I decided that I did not want it on the same area because there is a deep dam less than 50 yards from the house and I have a wildchild little boy who is into everything. So we are looking at other options around the ranch corral area and beginning to start the planning for a new home. A huge Thank You to all that are supporting and praying for us. It has been quite a roller coaster ride but we are still on it and riding it through.

Love,
Justine & Family
