Read the paragraph below. In the text box below, type each transition that shows order of importance.

If your money for restoring your old house is limited, start with the basics. First, repair any damage that threatens the structural or watertight integrity of the house. This includes significant damage to wood beams and posts, walls and chimneys pulling away from adjacent structures, leaking roofs, and cracked and damaged foundations. Second, replace and upgrade the electrical system and install smoke detectors. Faulty wiring is the primary cause of home fires. Heating and cooling are next. You would not want to put window units, a new furnace, or central air conditioning on worn-out wiring. Plumbing is the fourth most important system . . .

This is a very straightforward recording of the order of importance for the steps being described. The first and most important step is to take care of any damage that could cause the entire house to collapse beyond repair. Once structural damage has been remedied, the second step is to protect the house from damage from a fire by reworking the house's electrical wiring and insuring that fire detectors are installed and functioning. The third step involves installing new climate control systems for the house - wait until after the electricity has been brought up-to-date before installing a new furnace or air conditioning system. The fourth and final step included in the paragraph addresses the water system for the house - plumbing for the toilets, sinks, and other water uses.
