The electrician came back today and finished most of the remaining wiring and installations. It had an instant impact. And it's not finished. One of the pendants had to be moved and ended up being right on a strut or something like that, and he needs a different type of device there. One of the pendant burned out and we discovered it had a defect with a wire pinched in the assembly so that will have to be returned. The light over the sink has not been tried as we discovered it takes the small base bulbs of which I had none. But the two can lights got moved out enough from the cabinets and all but one of the under-cabinet task lights were installed. Monday they'll be back to finish those remaining things and install a chandelier in the dining room and lights in a couple of bedrooms and, if my luck holds out, run a phone line to my new office.
The contractor and crew also finished grouting the tile and tacked the carpet down to adjoin and then cleaned up and made things look so nice.
Monday will be busy. Applicances get delivered and installed, electricians will be here, contractor and crew, countertop guy briefly. This weekend I will clean, clean, clean. If I'm not too tired, I'm thinking of putting up my tree.
Here are today's pics.
