7:30 p.m. Cara Brookins "Raise My Roof"
Brookins’ story is sure to inspire the audience. After escaping two abusive marriages, Brookins was in desperate need of a home but without the means to buy one. So she did something incredible. Equipped with only YouTube videos and a 9-month bank loan, Brookins built her own house—all 3,500 square feet of it—from the foundation to the roof (and everything in between) with a work crew made up of her kids. The completed house has five bedrooms, a three-car garage, a shop and even a two-story tree house.
