Tonight I am very excited to be able to say the electrical work finally started. As you will see from the photo’s they did the cutting from the outside. This was done for three reasons a) the house has weird spanish plaster on the inside …. I don’t love the plaster but it needs to still stay for a while and b) it really reduces the dust factor and c) to preserve the picture rail, sometimes called a dado rail .
The guys were really friendly and very considerate. Lets be honest it is never great letting strangers into your house, trusting them to do what you need done and then to top this leaving them unsupervised while you go bring home the bacon that’s going to pay their bill. Yes its a messy project but after weeks of living with extension cords it is certainly a beautiful mess!
