Thank you for your prayers on the estimate. It came in today, and everything is in order. We will be able to afford all of the needed work and some of the other less-necessary work. The only thing we had to cut was adding a deck to the back of the house. It would have been nice but certainly is not necessary.
One new item for prayer. There is a delay on the windows. We were under the impression they would be delivered on Monday. They will not be here until Thursday or Friday. This means that the work may have to be postponed a week. The windows need to be done before most of the other work. It would be counter-productive for the men who are doing the work to drive here from two states away until the materials are all in place. So, please pray that either the windows will arrive ahead of time or that the rescheduling will work out for everyone involved.
I bought new light fixtures, a new ceiling fan and several other cabinets and accessories today. I think everything is going to look great when it is done. I will be posting before and after pictures within a week.
