Fixtures (mostly) on order; shares still needed. First, though, another cause needs folks' attention.

Bathroom fixtures are (mostly) ordered; the Lowe's gift cards were incredibly useful today. We'll still need a small cabinet for the downstairs bathroom, although we may have something in storage that will work. More to the point, we'll be ordering concrete and vinyl cut to order to have the shower bases made right in the house. The guy we worked with today was very forthright about what would work best for us, given the very small sizes we're working with, and also what will be most durable in the long run, and we've decided to go that route instead of buying either an acrylic base or a kit. We'll tile the walls, and at that point, get the doors.

The windows are getting delivered Tuesday (weather permitting, anyway; we're supposed to get serious snow starting tomorrow and running all through the next week). Once the windows are in, Ice and his crew can finish up the preliminary interior work in the upstairs (save the bathroom), and then when the fixtures are delivered (estimated at about three weeks out), the plumbers can finish the rough in, except for the showers. The deposit goes on the front door next week, too.

The next month's worth of work is pretty well laid out, and it all starts up again three days from now. We had thought the last two weeks would be a bit of a break, but no go.

We still need shares, of course. First, though, please go here and share the link to this much more urgent cause (and kick in a little scratch if you can). Lin's last worry and wish was that her sister be supported and safe, and we can help do that. It'd be nice if some folks could match our latest donation (or even exceed it).

Now, our own links for sharing:
  • Shares of our YouCaring page via the widgets provided, especially the widget code, which has once again been moved back to the purple box at the lower right-hand side of the page, that produces the image shown just above.
  • Shares of Wings's site; sales also fund the construction (indeed, they are the baseline for it). Testimonials help.
  • I've added Lowes gift cards to our Amazon wishlist. For folks who'd rather give gift cards than cash, this is far and away the best way to support construction. We're going to have to sink a small fortune into them for fixtures, appliances, flooring, etc., and at the moment, we can actually use the gift cards better than cash.
Thank you to everyone who has gotten us this far this year; we have a long way to go, but very soon (as in next week), you'll start seeing new photos of major progress. 

And once again, I want to direct your attention here (or, for folks at the GOS, here). Lin's spirit is on its journey to where the water meets the light, but Laura will still need our help for a while. Please T/R/share/donate to her fund if you can. Especially that last. It's needed.

Thanks, everybody.
