Well there really is no update as we were on rain delay this week and over the weekend we meet up with some letterboxers from North Carolina(hi dina and Charlie) and Arkansas(hi jim). And we went to my mom's side of the family reunion. 
From left to right: back end of my car, living room, dining room/kitchen, oh look the camper.

Oh my didnt realize how long it's been!

Update on construction: we received construction funds from all you wonderful friends and bought some lumber the day before Dh had to go back to work. So he went right to work and got a kit if the framing done. The living room. He put the house up off the ground 20" sounds like a good crawl space. 

He will be back Wednesday and he will continue on more.

Thanks for everything, Gg Dana

Construction update #5

Foundation of 15 piers are in the ground.

Abby had fun hammering with a small hammer I had for her unfortunately I cant find it now. Hoping it turns up soon. 
Next Wednesday when hubby comes home the three kids and I will be going back to work I just hope he can get more done without us there. He plans on putting in posts and laying the beams an then we will look into insulation to go under the ground floor so it's not so cold of a morning. 

More pictures soon! :)

Roasted and toasted

Yes I think my new trailname should be marshmallow or s'more. 
To say it didn't go well online today would be an understatement but I've shed enough tears about stuff I cant change already we don't need to go over it again. 

:) So far we have made 25% of our goal in the fundraiser and I have heard from a few that later this month they will be adding to it! Yay, thank you! It's greatly appreciated no matter if you give us hugs, smiles, kind words or a loving donation. 

I know times are hard. You are talking to someone who calls a camping trailer home. So if you cant give, dont. It's okay we totally understand. 

Love, Gg

Now to build a large letterbox or we could call it a house

So we couldn't get a home loan for mobile home so we are planning to build our own, it will be two stories 16' wide x 32' long which means 1024 sq ft living space.

I will be doing updates from time to time. We also have an online fundraiser going in if you would like to help with the construction of our letterbox, I mean home.
