It's starting to look like a HOUSE!

This is what they got done just today. Yes, there's a lot more to go, but they made a lot more progress than I expected. It's beautiful work. And as I said in the post title, it's starting to look like a HOUSE.

I did not, as it happens, get anywhere on the red upstairs. Our friends who are also clients visited this morning, and we both have a very early morning tomorrow, and there just wasn't time to fit it in today. That very early morning tomorrow also means that I have to get a bunch of stuff done yet today/tonight that I might normally punt to tomorrow, so for the rest of this, I'm just cutting and pasting from last night's post:

We're okay at the moment on [the cash] front (although how long that will last is anybody's guess, given that we're in the final and by far the most expensive stages). So as I said last night, right now, the best ways to help are as follows: by sharing the link to Wings's site (preferably with a testimonial, if you have some of his work), because sales are gonna keep this thing rolling; and sharing the link to our wishlist (which badly needs updating), with an emphasis on the Lowe's gift cards, because those are what will help us pay for all the stuff that will make this place liveable, like a water heater and flooring and so forth.
As I also said, as far as folks in need of immediate help with donations. Lauralee needs help badly right now. So does Karen. Please share their links, and kick in if you can. They're both on much tighter timetables, and there are health and safety concerns at issue for both of them. We'll be good for a little for both as soon as we can, but right now, we have a $1,425 repair bill for the truck hanging over us that has to be paid next week. After that, I can calculate where we are a little better, and squeeze some out of our most recent sale for each of them, I hope. 
I have a lot to do tonight for [tomorrow]; it's going to be a very busy, very stress-filled week here. Many thanks and much love to everyone. As to everything else, I'm going to keep saying this: It's time to fight.
