    Carole Torresan rarely leaves the house that she fixed up with her two teenage sons who were killed together in a road collision last year.

    With pictures of Logan and Dalin in every room, it's the only place she feels safe.

    Now, the house where Carole still lives with her husband, Dean, and their daughter, Brooklyn is falling apart and the family cannot afford to fix it.

    "It's one thing after another and I'm just ready to give up. But it's my home," Carole said Thursday.

    Logan, 14, and Dalin, 17, were killed last July when their car was hit by a pickup truck one kilometre north of their house on Highway 16 and Range Road 213 east of Edmonton.

    Carole now suffers extreme anxiety and was too scared to drive until she had to take her husband to the hospital in March.

    "This is my safe haven. I have pictures of my boys in every room that I go into, and this is where their stuff is. It's the only place where I feel close to them. Anxiety hits me the moment I leave," she said.

    "This house is where we have all of our

    A leaking roof in August led the family to discover that their roof was rotten, despite contractors having apparently fixed it years ago.

    After calling several roofing companies, a contractor said fixing the flat roof would cost tens of thousands of dollars. It's the latest in a list of repairs needed on the house the Torresans moved into 11 years ago.

    When they moved in, it had no flooring, doors or windows. The family got the fixer-upper for a rock-bottom price and turned it into a home.

    "We built this together. Every renovation in this house, and it's been massively renovated, has been done by one to five of us," Carole said.

    "We are the ones who put our love and our sweat and our hard work into this house to make it what it

    Carole said Logan and Dalin were loving sons and "amazing guys" who were always willing to help others. The two made headlines in 2012 when they travelled to Brazil with Dean to compete in the World Arm Wrestling Championships.

    Carole said the family was always extremely close-knit, and things are not getting any easier as Brooklyn, now 17, gets ready to graduate from high school next June.

    "People think that 14 months after you lose a child, you should be getting better. And that's a misconception. You're just starting to get bad at this point," Carole said, choking up. "You live in shock for the first nine months to a year after. You just keep believing they're coming home -- somebody made a mistake, they'll send them back.

    "Somewhere around a year you start to go, 'They're not coming And this is my life

    Friends have come together to help the family, using the "RIP Logan and Dalin Torresan" Facebook page as a rallying point. After bombarding home renovator and TV personality Mike Holmes with messages asking him to help, the same friends are spreading the word in hopes of attracting local tradespeople -- notably roofers -- who are willing to donate their time.

    A GoFundMe web page has also been launched to raise money.

    "For us to ask for help is a really, really difficult thing for us. Especially for my husband, to say he needs help is a hard thing," Carole said. "Every little bit matters to
