Who Gives Kudos:



 

  

Our current home and our home in progress

This has been our rental home for the past 21/2 years

And it has its share of problems like the laundry room, kidding.

 

 

Three roof leaks through an old metal sheets.

 

 Also there are so many tiny red ants living under the cement floor that they work there way inside as an army.

 

Our cooking range less oven.

 

Lizards like this with cockroaches, ants and big spiders are free borders that get into whatever they can at night as we have no cabinets.

 

 Our marriage with a twenty five dollar ring set last August 2009

 

 Our fully equipped comfort room with soap and water for all uses and have not seen tissue for years. 

 



Home with detached comfort room on left.

My wife got a loan and paid half for a lot that's was behind me when I took this last photo of our home.The total cost for a 30'x30' lot was $1000 dollars so we still owe $500.

 First time we were happy with the thought of something that we could call home with no rent.

 

This was the start of our new 20'x18' home in March of this year.

The front door, bedroom rear left and comfort room rear right with the rest as living space. My wife Mylene in red.

 

One very happy person looking out the c/r window of her new dream home.

 

 
 

 

 



This roof is nepa which is a type of coco leaf that's very strong as a 20 year roof.



Roofing with the inside view.



The cost for 600 of these nepa roofing lengths made by a local family was $45



A carpenter who uses no level but only a plumb, hand saw and wood chisel does very good work for $5 per day.



Hollow block masons and labors for all trades cost $3 per day. This is Nonoi on bottom left, the son of the carpenter Victor above and in the stripe shirt is a laborer who mixed concrete, dug out for the septic and whatever was needed.







This is as far as we have been able to get on our home that we really want to move into. There are no walls, windows or doors. There is no cement floor, no plumbing or electric, no toilet and just nothing but what you see which to us is everything. For plumbing just two cold water faucets, seat-less commode, kitchen and c/r sinks. Basic electric, coco lumber which is the weakest but least expensive for door jambs and window frames. Bamboo for sides with 4'x4' bamboo panels. What's accomplished so far combined was about $2500, and if we could come up with that much more from 50 people each donating only fifty dollars for a good cause we could finish our home and be living in it by August. For three years we have lived while barely surviving, yet our faith has always remained and only grown stronger. God knows our simple needs and with our own home we would have no more rent of $50 per month that is very difficult for us to pay.

Any help from anybody would at least add up, and only God knows of just how much I gave when I was once well off and worth near a half million liquid. But things change, people change, life changes, circumstances change and faith changes, and I am more thankful to God than words can say for the faith that He has allowed me to acquire for these end times. May God bless you by doing the same for you. Romans 9:18
