Lighting was the focus for this week’s Washington update. We’re getting ready for phase 3 of the project, too, so Lee and Cody met on that, which is really why we went there. We are all more than ready to see how the exterior paint comes out and to see a door that doesn’t look like burglars just left (we think a dog did the scratches).
But mostly Mandi and I hung around with James and talked about lighting, not falling off of tall towers, and people we knew who did fall down from buildings.
As for the lighting, everything seems to work, which is always a real bonus, right? Plus, we had to have a bit of fun, because it IS allowed occasionally.
The entry light looks just fine next to the fancy chandelier, which still needs its fancy light bulbs to make it extra pretty. But we’re relieved that it goes just fine with the other interior fixtures.
The kitchen lights are very pretty and are a rather elegant touch in there. Most important, of course, is that people will be able to see what they’re cooking! The two additional pendants aren’t here yet, but we’re told they will arrive on Monday.
We found out the granite will be ready soon and the cabinets will get painted. Yay.
We tested the pull-lights in the closets, and they are just fine. And as you can see, the team was very impressed at the ceiling fans. Like I said, we were having some fun.
The completed interior of the living room drew many ooh and ahs as well. Unfortunately, the sconces are not up because one of the glass parts of one of them broke during installation. We will have to hope they have the replacement glass.
But we cheered up when we went outside, because James had installed one of the outdoor lights, so we could see what it looked like. Mandi was extra impressed, as you can see.
We keep talking about what a nice house this is and how peaceful and quiet the surroundings are. Plus, we like the neighbors. It will be a great home, especially for a family with high school-age children. It’s less than 5 minutes to school.
Remember, Lee is looking for ideas for what the Russet Valley house would sell for, so get them to us in whatever way you want to.Hermann says please like and share!
