Let There Be Light!

When we moved into our house there were only over head lights in the bathroom, hallway, and kitchen.  This drove me crazy.  I like to be able to walk into a room and flip a switch and there be light.  Some of the rooms without overheard fixtures did have outlets that were connected to a switch but in most cases it wasn't the most logical outlet in the room to plug in a lamp. This resulted in most cases having to walk through a dark room to turn a lamp on.  It got very old, very fast so installing over head light fixtures in all the bedrooms, the dining room and the living room was on our list of fixes from the start and we finally got around to doing just that.  

First we had to take down the awful ceiling fan in the dining room

Then the electrician installed boxes in each room and Nick went back and installed the lights

The Master Bedroom

I apparently don't have pictures of the other bedrooms or living room but I plan on doing a whole house update soon so I will be sure to point those out.  It has been so nice to be able to just flip a switch in these rooms and I am sure come warm weather having those ceiling fans will be a welcome relief as well.
