Let there be light….

.

Bright and early Sunday morning the husband and his friend were hard at it.

Removing the stuffing they’d previously stuffed and drilling holes for the continuous feed wires to slip through.

.

.

This, as you can imagine…. was a royal pain in the  *ss.

But finally,  it was ready for a light fixture.

And my husband used the pool table as an auxiliary ladder.

.

Viola.

.

.

A light fixture.

Which receives the husband’s very technical and OSHA approved tug test.

Just kidding, OSHA reps run screaming in horror from any project my husband oversees.

More stuffing, more plywood.

.

.

Light fixture number two was not at all cooperative, and adjustments I don’t even want to contemplate were made.

This might be a good time to mention the time my husband installed a ceiling fan in our living room in North Carolina.

It took an electrician 2 hours to undo that mess.

.

.

But after an hour of tinkering, and some oh so colorful language…

Fixture two was up.

.

.

Were the proper amount of decorative screws used?  They were not.

Was it in perfect alignment with the first light fixture?  It was not.

.

.

But since this simple job took them over 5 hours?

I doubt they cared.

  • For informational purposes only – the husband can not decide whether he wants to put ceiling fans in between the lights or just another light, hence the open middle space.

  1. It’s looking pretty good. If anyone comments about the lights not being in line, bury them in the woods.

    I know you seem to be able to see my photos (that flashed on my phone) but I don’t have any bunnies today. Here’s one from the past.

    1. He’s driving me crazy. What started out as a rustic barn space for lawn mowers and motorcycles is turning into a full fledged apartment. When he starts muttering about running water? I might have to kill him.

  2. Two things:(1) These look way better than industrial florescent, and (2) it only took the electrician 20 minutes to fix your husbands previous attempt to install the light (in NC). the rest of the time was “by the hour” gouging. No way he was leaving there with less that $150 in his pocket.
