Ken Eixman, a loving husband, father, and friend, passed away on November 6th, 2022, leaving behind a legacy of hard work and determination.


One of his greatest accomplishments was the BuckBoard House, a project he started from the ground up in 2014. Over the past nine years, Ken and his wife Deanna have been living in a travel trailer while they worked tirelessly to build their dream home.


Unfortunately, Ken passed away before he could see his project come to fruition, leaving behind a big task to be completed.


To finish the BuckBoard House, we need to raise $150,000 in materials, and we are seeking the help of volunteers to assist with the construction process.


We are hosting fundraisers and building days to raise funds and gather volunteers. Any monetary donations, materials, or volunteer support would be greatly appreciated to help us complete Ken's vision and honor his legacy.

The Story

Ken Eixman was a loving husband, father, and friend who spent the last nine years building a home for his family - what Ken came to call the BuckBoard House. Whenever he had a spare buck he'd use it to buy a board to keep the build going. 


He was a hard worker who poured his heart and soul into the house, working on it little by little as money became available. He dreamed of spending the rest of his life in the home he had built for his wife, Deanna, and their family.


Finally with the exterior finished there was hope insight.

They had hoped to spend Christmas 2023 together in their new home, but Ken passed away unexpectedly on November 6th, 2022, before he could see his dream come to life.

Deanna is now left to finish the BuckBoard House on her own. It's been a challenging journey, even prior to Ken's passing: they have been living in a 20-foot travel trailer while working on the house to help expedite the process. Besides the small space the extreme Texas weather has been a challenge. 


Despite the obstacles, they've never lost sight of their goal - to create a beautiful, safe, and comfortable home for themselves and their loved ones.

We're reaching out to our community in the hopes of finding compassionate and caring individuals who can help finish the BuckBoard House.


Ken's passing has left a significant burden on the family, and they are struggling to complete the home without his income and expertise.


We need to raise $150,000 in materials, and we are seeking volunteers and donors who can help us with the construction process. Every donation, no matter how small, can make a difference.


By contributing to this project, you're not just helping to finish a house - you're helping rebuild after a devastating loss. This is a chance to honor Ken's memory and continue his legacy by completing his dream for his family.


Please consider donating your time, skills, and money to help finish the BuckBoard House. This is a project to bless a family that has blessed and will continue to bless so many.
