Single Mother Builds House With The Help of YouTube Tutorials

In the United States, an Arkansas single mother and her four children managed to construct a five-bedroom, 3500-square-foot home (with three-car garage and a two-story treehouse) by watching hundreds of video tutorials on YouTube.

“There was a lot of asking people at Home Depot for help, too,” said Cara Brookins of Bryant, and she added that with “just a little bit at a time, we figured out how to lay a foundation block.”

The family could not afford to pay builders to build a home, but they could pay for an acre of land and building supplies. So Brookins came up with the self-taught YouTube scheme.

She was inspired by seeing a tornado-hit home that bared some of its construction and said that “You don’t often get the opportunity to see the interior workings of a house, but looking at the boards and nails, it just looked so simple.” She thought that if she could put a wall back up in place that maybe she should start a home from scratch.

Once she had purchased the supplies there was no going back, and with the help of YouTube and her family, they constructed their home.
