Electrical nearing completion (rough anyway...)

The installation of the recessed lighting (which is everywhere we have hung ceilings) went pretty quickly, as did the running of the wires. Then the electrician went on vacation...

...seriously, though. We have a GREAT electrician. He takes great pride in his work and is very friendly and professional. I know we are getting the best from him. He made a very good case for spending a little more money and getting all Lightolier lighting. Makes sense. You can always rip out cheap cabinets (for example) but chaging out recessed lighting that fails after a few years is much harder. So many choices have to be made in this kind of job - all of them shaped by financial concerns. One of the lessons I have been learning is that it really makes sense to pay more for CERTAIN things, even if it hurts right now.
