|A Gaping Hole|
I had a message from Ralph Bagnall who encouraged me to check out LED bulbs. We did and will probably go with them in spite of the additional added up front cost. Bought a CFL lamp to test and it's really very bright and glaring. That, combined with the warm up period is having us consider the LED's.
Once the ceiling was removed and things cleaned up, Diane and I measured all of the features and made the floor plan. It was drawn in 1/2 scale and here's the progression:
Next the counters and upper cabinets were located, upper right drawing.
This was followed by locating the rafters and approximate location of the ductwork that we'll need to work around, bottom left drawing.
And the final plan is the colored version on the lower right.
Now it's time to load up the truck with all of the destruction debris and haul it off to the transfer station in Henderson. We plan to stop at the Bulb Man to get their advice on placement and number of fixtures we'll need to complete this phase of the project.
