This badass single mom knows firsthand that you can do anything if you put your mind to it. Cara Brookins and her four children built their house from the ground up themselves, using only YouTube tutorials to guide them.
The family found themselves in need of a new home back in 2008 when a domestic violence situation threatened their well-beings.
Single mom Cara knew that she wouldn't be able to afford to purchase a home, but she still wanted to give her kids a fresh start. So, she and her children built the house themselves.
"We had been just so emotionally kicked down,” Brookins told WCNC. “We could afford all the supplies so we just put it together ourselves.”
Using YouTube tutorials and the sage wisdom of Home Depot employees as their guides, the Brookins family was able to build their house all by themselves. Pretty badass, if you ask me.
