Andy and I have been working on our dream of building a self sufficient home and property and the first step in this plan si to purchase a small home while we free ourselves from debt. With Christmas fast approaching, friends and family have been asking what we want… but there really is nothing we really need or want more than our own home. So, in lieu of gifts, we are asking our loved ones to donate to our down payment. We have set a goal of $6,000. While we do not expect our friends and family to contribute this much, this is our personal goal to reach before even looking... houses are moving so fast right now! We would really appreciate donations of any size!
