Single Mom Builds An Entire House For Her Family Using YouTube Tutorials (Photos)

Single Mom Learns How To Build Home For Family On YouTube

Cara Brookins and her four children have turned in one of the first truly heart-warming stories of 2017. What did they do? Cara along with her children, built an entire home from using do-it-yourself tutorials from YouTube.

Cara needed a place to stay for her and her four children but with two failed marriages in her past and experiencing the debt that comes from them she didn’t have a lot of options.

From Inside Edition:

Cara Brookins, 45, of Little Rock, Arkansas, explained that when she and her children started on the project in 2008, they were looking for a way to move on from a traumatic past.

“My kids and I had been through a really tough domestic violence situation,” she told InsideEdition.com. “When we left, we were pretty beaten down, destroyed. We needed something big, and we needed a place to live. We needed some kind of action after so long feeling powerless.”

For the Brookins family, that project was building a house.

The one catch was that none of them, including her four kids — aged 2, 11, 15 and 17 at the time — had any experience in a do-it-yourself project of that magnitude.

“Those really early days felt the most hopeless to me,” she admitted. “I don’t think there was any part we felt confident we could finish.”

But they took it each day at a time.

Brookins started by taking out a construction loan from the bank for $130,000 to go toward supplies, and purchasing an empty, 1-acre plot of land for $20,000.

Then the family took to the internet, looking up instructions on Google and memorizing YouTube tutorials on the many steps involved in putting together a 3,500-square-foot house with five bedrooms and a three-car garage.

    Single mother of 4, learned how to build a house and do things by watching youtube videos.

    I think she should have started with “BIRTH control”.

    150k for that house in backwoods no where Arkansans? Arkansas is real???She could have bought a fixer upper just as big and more land for 5-50k put 30k into it and be in the black.
    Building something like that is impressive and must have been fun as a family project but she is leveraged now.
    Anyway you can get a lot of house anywhere for cheap if your willing to put some effort into it. She is clearly willing to put effort into it which is why this doesn’t make sense?
    craig what you said was just Evil, take it back and apologize. I mean like the satanic kind of evil Sean and whatsherface sandyhook lady were talking about.You are a bottomliner that forgets about the human factor making you by default a satanist.She didnt ask you for help did she? I pity you now craig…SHAME

    Usually Craig has great comments…… kind of surprised.

    No heart on this one.

    I think she made a statement to her family, that they can work together, still be a wholesome family without the other bullshit they have had to endure over the years.

    Great to see a nice story for a change.

      Craig doesn’t get that not everyone falls into a rainbow and a pot of Gold.
