Meet this remarkable woman named Kara Brookins. In more recent times, her life was filled with fear, despair, and uncertainty.
Kara looks back on two divorces and ruthless husbands that turned her life into a true ordeal.
She was left alone with four children. It was at this moment that she decided she had to radically change her life.
One day, Kara witnessed a tornado hitting a building, leaving only the foundations behind.
This sight sparked the idea in Kara to build a timber-frame house. After all, such a structure could easily be constructed on her own.
Her children were 2, 11, 15, and 17 years old at that time.
To execute the planned project, she had to take out a $150,000 loan from a bank. Armed with building materials and YouTube videos, the whole family set to work to construct a large house.
They learned how to pour concrete, lay drywall, lay bricks, and most importantly, how to coordinate their efforts together.
A single mother of four builds a massive house with her kids by following YouTube videos.
Now, Kara no longer worries about her children—she claims that after building the house, they fear no challenges anymore!
“Building a house with no experience was incredibly naive, but sometimes courage hides behind naiveté,” admits Kara.
The house turned out to be huge—1066 square meters! It has everything one needs and more: 5 bedrooms, a spacious 3-car garage, a workshop, and a large living room.
