The Big Cs: Home Edition

Petunia and I are participating in SWNIC's Home Renovation & Beautification Program, and today we got the work estimate. A rehab specialist came out to inspect our house a few weeks ago, took notes about the work we need to have done, and wrote up an estimate for the repairs. Altogether, they come to an estimated $12,000. Not bad, eh? This is where it pays to have a teeny tiny dollhouse of a home! Included in that list are 13 items, some small (new storm door) and some large (a bathroom renovation; a new roof). I'm REALLY excited about the prospect of getting some of this work done FOR FREE, but we don't yet know if our grant will be $3,000 or $10,000. We know the grant won't cover all of the work, but we'd appreciate even a couple hundred bucks. Know what I mean, Jellybean?
