Ben stopped by for a site visit yesterday afternoon to drop off some extra hearth tiles for our fireplace, only to find that the electricians had been on site for most of the day finishing their installations. What does this mean? We finally have working lights!
We needed to drop off a few more things on site so last night we decided to make a second trip up after I finished work - which is why we have a mixture of shots taken at dusk and at night.
First of all, here is a close-up shot of our pretty chandelier. Looks very nice, but at the moment only two of the globes seem to be working (even with new globes in them). We still need to work out if this is due to a problem with the wiring efforts of the electricians, or a problem with the chandelier itself. So it may yet need to be replaced...hope not though.
|I love the way it throws out the "bubbles" of light across the roof|
Here is a long shot of it looking down the hallway:
|This looks similar to the style of my work office - aren't I lucky!|
And from another angle:
Now for a tour of the rest of the house. First stop, the coach lights on the front verandah and the garage:
In our current bedroom at home we have a similar set-up to this, with a pair of downlights just in front of our big bedroom window. It works really well at providing just enough ambient lighting in the room, so this was something that we really wanted to carry through to the new house:
The ensuite tiles have now been fully laid, just a bit more grouting to go:
Bathroom also done:
The kitchen during late afternoon and at night. Think we might have gone a bit overboard on the downlights considering the servery light still needs to be installed above the bench, but we have put the different areas on different circuits so they don't all need to be on at once.
Theatre room (although it is difficult to get any good shots in this room given it is so dark!):
And finally, the garage:
