If you are simply budgeting for this, I would suggest guestimating the size, and you should be able to get close enough for the dollars and cents to come out close, but if you are going ahead with it, and don't want to reframe anything, yes, this is what I would do. Stay tuned though, because there are a lot of smart people here, and someone may offer some better advice.
