I did it!!!

I finally accomplished this. It feels good to have the porch lighting ready for fall and winter. Now in a few months when I come home after dark I won’t be fumbling trying to find where to put my key.
The motion detector needs some adjusting but that can be accomplished easily in the next few days. Actually I may wait until the fall to do that since the darkness of the nights may affect the settings I want.
Hooray for me!!

Took Next Step

I joined Angie’s List yesterday so I could find a reputable electrical contractor.


Getting prices for parts. My neighbor, an electrical engineer, agreed to help me with the design.


After visiting the Lighting Design Center I got some ideas and concepts about lighting.

Lighting has the best effect (i.e. the feel, warmth, overall appearance, etc.) when a minimum of two and preferably three light sources is used. I saw some pretty amazing effects at the Lighting Design Center. They were not harsh but soft, yet bright. The overall effect was very warm and inviting.

BTW – I also installed an attic fan and now with the heat of summer my upstairs is cooler. Its not what it would be with an air conditioner but its within the tolerable range.
