New mini-goal of $2,500. PLEASE share.

That photo's from last week. As in eight days ago. Since the vendor effed up our shipment, the crew took another job in the meantime, and they won't be back until tomorrow. This is a constant risk for us, which is why I knock myself out daily trying to raise what's needed to keep them employed.

I'm going back to setting mini-goals. We have SO much ahead of us that needs to be crammed into a very short time frame for completion, and it's going to be so hideously expensive, that I'm going to shoot for specific amounts rather than the ad hoc way I've been approaching it lately. We'll have $4K to shell out on July 1st for the exterior plaster, and between now and then, the upstairs balcony needs to be done, and we have to get the stucco. I'm estimating (and this is conservative) $2,500. That's the current mini-goal. So please, please, PLEASE share all the links below, because I really need to push us through this last ungodly phase. We both need it, for our health above all else. Here are the links:
  • First, to donate, the PayPal link is here
  • Second, for sales (which we really need to make, and I'll be highlighting some of his high-end stuff on the site this week), 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 finally, 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. [Shout-out also to the generous person (tm, maybe?) who bought the molasses, which is how we medicate the horses, and to the three folks who sent Lowe's gift cards.] A note here: To tile the downstairs, we'll need to go to Home Depot, which doesn't sell gift cards through Amazon; they can be purchased through the company's Web site here.
Many thanks and much love to everyone. I have to go help out with muck duty now, and then a whole lot of other labor thereafter.
