I woke up with the idea that the stupid wire coming down from the ceiling could be eliminated altogether. That's when I tried going from the bottom up. I ran a line from the bottom fireplace to the transformer to make sure that light worked...It did. So far, so good. Please ignore the mess beside the house....It has nothing to do with wiring...
Those both worked....Still good. I connected another light to the mix to make sure that it also worked.
It is not in a candlestick yet, so I just attached it with everything else.
About now, there are a bunch of pro wiring people out there that are about to faint and probably waiting for the crooked house to explode in a puff of smoke.
By the way, when you are hooking wires to a transformer, make it easy on yourself. If you hook them left to right around the screws they will be attached and unattached easily. You want the wire to go in the direction that the screw is turning.
Before I learned that trick by trial and error, I said a few bad words when trying to attach the wires. Now it is easy as pie.....How is pie easy?
Anyway, I am well on my way to the finish line. April and Amare are on their way over, so I won't get anything more done this morning.
See you tomorrow.
