A Mid-Michigan woman is on a tight time frame after her insurance company threatened to cancel her policy if she doesn't fix parts of her home.

"It has gotten to the point that I have no clue what to do," Linda Wahl said.

She needs her old, dilapidated garage taken down. Wahl said her insurance plans on canceling her home insurance policy if she can't get it down.

"It's frustrating. No one can help me. I'm on full disability. I live on a fixed income. There's not a lot I can do anymore," Wahl said.

The detached garage's roof is caving in. Wahl said contractors estimated a tear down at several thousand dollars at her Gilford home, which is more than she can afford.

Wahl said she is keeping her garage up by putting up wood pieces and pillars. She said she is concerned for her safety.

"Knowing my luck, my house will burn down. The way my luck goes. It is frustrating," Wahl said.

She said she uses her garage to store things like her lawnmower and dryer. She said she will need a small shed built for storage.

"I would be ever so grateful," Wahl said.
