More home improvement we can't afford

Well, we just signed contracts, contingent on financing, to have Nerdvana resided. The existing siding is in truly horrific shape, so we decided that this was the correct solution. Unfortunately, it's bloody expensive. He's cutting us deals on the basis that we're on a major street and it's good advertising, plus he forgot to include the cost of something when running the estimate and so will do it for free, which is saving us even more. But it's still very expensive. Almost as much as the roof, in fact. Ouch.

But, it will be a very good thing for the house. Better insulation (particularly important on the second floor), better looks; should improve the value of the house a good bit for the refi.
