SRS, your energy and resourcefulness astound me. In your situation, I would be completely dependent on a contractor and up to my neck in fresh debt. I salute you.
Today, I am off to Kitchener to be needled at the allergist's office, but after that I shall visit the garden centre for some perennials. In particular, I'm looking for bee balm (Monarda didyma), which smells good, attracts bees, and looks like something from Mars so Himself likes it, and foxglove (Digitalis purpurea), which I think is interesting and should grow well in the bald spot where we used to have a scrubby-looking cedar.
I thought it was a bit late in the season to be planting, but Steve the Garden Guy gave me that pitying look I'm getting used to and said, "Why, no, not at all."
