Inkwell Manor

YouTube can be an entertainment, learning, money making, and even a tutorial platform. Cara Brookins, along with her four children, followed the latter to build "Inkwell Manor". In 2008, Brookins and her four children (then aged 7, 15, 11 and 2) left her abusive husband in search of a better life. So, they temporarily found a tiny home outside of Little Rock, Arkansas, until a more permanent place could be established. Her initial plan was to buy a house, but they passed by a house ravaged by a tornado, and thought it would be a perfect project for the family. "Once I had bought all these supplies and they were all piled up, there was no way out. There wasn't enough money to pay anyone to put them together. There was no plan B. This was 2008, so YouTube was not then what it is now. There weren't really comprehensive videos or channels devoted to this sort of thing. But there's a lot of ways to frame a window or to put a foundation together. So, we would watch three or four videos for each stage of construction and then think, 'Which one of these is going to work the best for us?,'" recalls Brookins.
