La increíble historia de la mujer que construyó su casa usando solo YouTube (08/02/2017)

cara Brookins tenía dos problemas: quería demostrar a sus hijos que no existen obstáculos en la vida imposibles de vencer. Y en el ámbito más terrenal  quería dar a su familia una casa como corresponde, luego de varios años de abusos por parte de su pareja.

para solucionar ambos cara Brookins decidió mirar You Tube, pero no con el fin de gastar su tiempo con el youtuber de moda, sino para aprender a construir su casa, con sus hijos. Ello sin ningún conocimiento anterior.

Una vez con el presupuesto en la mano y con la venta de una propiedad que poseía consiguió los  US$ 130.000 que requería semejante empresa y luego se puso manos a la obra con sus pequeños, que entonces tenían entre dos y diecisiete años. Cada uno colaboró a su manera, según recuerda ella misma: “mi hijo mayor, Drew, me ayudó a diseñar el plan para que el ayuntamiento lo aprobara”, cuenta.


Así durante la construcción se enfrentaron a otro problema: habían aspectos técnicos que aún el mejor manual de Yout Tube podían resolver. para ello la familia Brookins contrató por US$ 15 la hora un técnico el cual, les ayudaba cada vez que ellos pudieran costear sus servicios.

Con todo eso, luego de nueve meses la casa se terminó y obtuvo todos los permisos municipales, pasando las inspecciones del código de construcción, por lo que después de nueve meses de agotador trabajo, cara y sus hijos se mudaron a su nueva impresionante casa de cinco dormitorios.

La propiedad, que dispone de un garaje para 3 autos, biblioteca, un taller y una casa de árbol de dos plantas en el patio trasero costó US$ 130.000, pero la última vez que fue tasada, su valor aproximado era de USD$500.000.

Precisamente toda esta historia, que suena casi increíble es la que cara cuenta en su libre “Como una casa construyó una familia” (“How a House Built a Family” , en inglés), el que lanzó hace pocos días en , Estados Unidos y que busca ayudar a aquellas personas que están en desgracia…o que han sufrido violencia.
