Of course, it came in some enormous cardboard boxes, which provided us with plenty of construction material for a project that we've been wanting to do since we saw it here.
Katrin and I were sitting in our living room lamenting the lack of light, when Katrin says, "Track lights would look good in here."
"Why yes," I reply, "they would." So I go get some stuff.
Now if you're going to crawl around in an attic in July, you might as well go for the three-way switches, right? The first one replaces a switch by the front door, which used to control the outlet below it (now the outlet is always on.) We never got around to getting a floor lamp for that outlet, maybe because I don't think of floor lamps as home improvement (they can be installed without tools.)
The second switch goes next to the existing living room light in a new box.
I didn't want to lie face down in the insulation while feeding the wire through this hole:
So I broke out the cordless jig saw and made myself some space.
Light! I got over the "insulation itchies" within a couple of days, and now Katrin won't go blind reading* in the living room.
* "Reading" often consists of sleeping in the recliner with a copy of JAVMA and one or the other of our pets.3 comments
