   some parts are there (most, i think). the general 
rule prefers donations (e.g. for library shelves 
steve, lamont, and i each pledged $40, though the 
cost is greater--i'm hoping they'll each chip in 1/3 
the overage, and we're reusing the 2x4 scraps that 
are around). electrical was budgeted, hence i'm 
expecting reimbursement within budget.
