A couple of months ago we put in an application for a grant to fix up the outside of our home. We got some quotes and took pictures of our house and sent away the application. We were told that if we were approved we would get a phone call. That was supposed to happen 3 weeks ago. If we were rejected, we would just get a letter in the mail. That day came and we didn't hear anything. I was a little disappointed. So yesterday morning Jeff got the mail and lo and behold, our rejection letter arrived, only it wasn't a rejection letter after all, we were approved! (I guess our house really is ugly after all, yay!) Then yesterday afternoon, Jeff put in an application with MB Hydro to help pay for the insulation we want to put on our house. This morning I got a call from the lumber store saying that our application for that had been approved!
We now know how we'll be spending our summer! I'll keep you posted with pics. It's a big job because there is so much to do before the new siding can go on, so this could take a while. Here's the before.
