I know tons of stuff about finance, repair, building, government programs. Practical and theoretical. If I dont know it, I can probably find it.

I also need somewhere to post links and it feels like a bit of a waste just keeping them in OneNote.

Finance:
Green incentives: http://www.dsireusa.org/
Rural Development: http://www.rurdev.usda.gov/LP_Subject_HousingAndCommunityAssistance.html
NeighborWorks: http://www.nw.org/network/index.asp

ETA: My mom had cancer for almost 10 years. She helped me tear off roofs 2 stories in the air, in 100+ degree weather, at 61 y/o, with terminal cancer.

Did you find any companies operating in your area that will by your foreclosed mortgage?

Nope. I should be able to qualify for a rural development loan though (spent my entire lunch break meeting loan officers). Luckily I've brought my credit score from 0 to 690 in the past 4 months. -.- This really belies how stressful it is to meet with 30-40 different agencies over a few months. I grind my teeth in my sleep.

Does this mean you're still planning on a foreclosure? Or paying the note off with this loan? :confused:
 
If you had to buy a new boiler, what would you choose, gas or oil?
What kinda gas, propane or natural?

Natural is great if you have pipes to your house (which is rare in rural areas) and it's 32% off price of oil at the moment. Propane is a massive headache though, the delivery companies try to screw you on everything and it's crazy expensive. They use the same equipment though.

Oil is expensive, it would be my last choice because the contaminents eat burners.

So
Oil v Propane = Oil
Oil v NG = NG
Propane v NG = NG
Oil v Coal = Coal
