Never could I have imagined that following my dream to live away from the city and off-grid would leave me broke and with a house that is laying on the ground. Funding will erect my permanent prefabricated small home.
After both children married 4 months apart, my neighborhood became a ghetto, and my time being spent split between Colorado and California caring for my terminally ill mother, I decided it was time to sell my home of 27 years and move to the country into a smaller home to get out of debt. My home sold within 15 days for an amount that should have had my home up and occupied within 6 months.
That was the plan at least. Little did I know that budgeting 20% over cost would not even be close to what it would cost to build my home in Park County, Colorado. The land was cheap. But, the contractors are few and far between and the influx of new contractors are crooks. So, my project has now gone 6 months longer than supposed to, ran almost twice as much as it was to cost do to the labor on contractor issues, delays, and I am now desperate for assistance with getting the slab poured so my walls can go up and I have a place to live again. There's my story.
My biggest fear was always being homeless, so I started this project to live within my means and never be homeless. Instead, I have been screwed over at every turn and am exactly what I was attempting to avoid. Broke and without a home to live in at age 52.
