A new old house #3

Leave a comment

Every light and switch was replaced. Loving our original Lowline as we did, lighting was dim at the best of times. The groovy recessed pendants just didn’t emit much light and reading was near impossible.

The entire old home and new sections were required to cope with modern appliances as well. So, everything was re-wired and 3-phase was installed too.

Downlights now help with reading although we’ve not overdone it, and all have dimmers. Pendants look lovely too.

Lastly, we had ugly overhead power lines detached from the roof and now they are run underground… at great expense but absolutely worth it.

An added bonus has been the ability to add ceiling fans in key rooms and tuck away air conditioning neatly, and mainly for cooler months.
