We've got light!

If you are planning a renovation, hire a lighting expert or designer or someone. Just do it.

Do not try to navigate the world of recessed and LED and 2700 and 3000 and ambient and spot lighting and dimmers and home automation alone. Seriously, just don't do it.

Or call me, maybe the knowledge from our bumpy path could be helpful to someone else.

I still don't know if we made the right choices. But we made them and we are seeing them through.


And we have heat...

Or we'll have heat. As soon as it's all hooked up and we're moved in and it's not summertime anymore.

But this is a big deal!

It's unbelievably sad that such a useful and huge closet has been completely designated to this monster of a furnace but I suppose that is how it has to be. We spent so many hours and brain cells trying to figure out how to layout the upper floor of our house and this was the least painful solution we could come up with.

As for how it works, well, we'll just have to wait and see.
