Sorry to hear about your SIL's issues. HGTV doesn't monitor these boards looking for worthy projects. So don't wait for a response from them, it won't be coming.

I'd recommend talking with a group like Rebuilding Together if they have a chapter in your town.

Otherwise, I'd talk with your pastor or priest as many churches do this kind of work for members and others in the community.

General Disclaimer

Any advice given here is general in nature and is not necessarily valid for your given area. If in doubt check with your local codes enforcement department for what is required when doing electrical, plumbing or structural work on your house. Permits may or may not be required in your area and home owners may not be able to DIY some tasks. I have no way of knowing if you have the skills needed to complete the tasks you are asking about, when in doubt seek professional assistance.

I am not an employee of HGTV, nor is anyone else that posts here.

My advice may be worth exactly what you pay me for it. :-) For the record I did not stay in a Holiday Inn Express last night.
