And Then There Was Light.

We've finally had a chance to install 2 of the planned 4 exterior lights on the front facade. I've had the lights since October, having looked and looked trying to find the right ones! Each weekend, it was either raining, or we were busy! So with the sun shining, school holidays and no Ballet or Parties to go to, the lights were installed!

The weather proof wiring covers (spider homes!) were removed and the position of the lights was marked:

It was a little tricky trying to hold the large lights up while wiring them in place, and then trying to attach them to the wall.

So after about 4 hours, both were up and they work!

...please excuse the 2 odd agave's, they both need repotting and 'straightning'!

Hi there, your house looks lovely. We are nearly finished our build and I have been looking for lights like these. If you don't mind me asking where did you buy them from. Thanks so much.

Hi Creative Cards, They came from 'Surrey Lighting' in Cantebury Rd, Surrey Hills. They seemed to have the most extensive range of exterior lights I have seen this side of the City!
