Light Her Up....
I got the first coat of spackle on this morning...Now sit and wait another 24 hours? I don't think so.
I found two Florette bulbs and holders for the front ceiling. Then the flickering one for the fireplace. I am not sure that I like that one. It flashes of and on like a neon billboard. No flickering that I can see. I also found two tin wall sconces that will be great for the desk area, upstairs.
First, to test them out, I did side by side grafts on all of the wires and wrapped them around the posts of the transformer. This transformer is big enough to electrify a 10 room house...I may just swap it out with the one in the townhouse. It seems a waste of power.
I just left the others on the floor for the time being... The leads weren't long enough to do anything fancy.
I do think that this will give the room enough light, even with the door closed.
I am still not sure about the flickering fire light.
I am going to run the wires today and I will be sure to leave enough lead to change that one out if I need to.
Walter and I are going to a movie this morning, so that will cut a couple of hours out in the middle. When we get back, I will go straight back to work....And I will be looking for Zar. Tessie is in a very helpful mood and Zar seems to have disappeared again...
He isn't any more enthusiastic than I am about wiring....Strange. Maybe it's because he uses mainly steam and gas power in his work. Maybe I should try gas lights...Maybe not...
See you tomorrow.
