As many of you are aware, we are building a container house. It is not only the coolest house around, but it is being built very economically (well under a stick built home per square foot), will have geothermal heat and most all including the containers are reused materials keeping our footprint on this earth small.  What you might not know is that we have used all of our retirement money to complete our home and need your help to finish it.

The reason we embarked on this is because our current house needs major repairs that we can't afford now that we are retired, with a mortgage that doesn't come close to it's current value as is the case with many Americans right now. You know the rest of that story.

Overruns and some bad decisions about contractors have put us in a position to ask for help.  That's where you come in. We would like any help you can offer financially but there is an incentive for any contributions over $100. We will have a brick sidewalk leading up to the coolest house in Lebanon and with each $100. donation, you will have an engraved brick as part of that sidewalk. Dedicate a brick to a loved one, put your name on it, let your kids see their name on a brick-whatever you want in 3 lines on a 4X8 brick! Everyday as we walk up to our house, we'll be reminded how our friends helped when we needed it -where you will always be welcome. Pass this on to your friends and ask them to do the same. We'd love to have bricks from all over the world as a part of our walk.
