Let There Be Light

The lights are finaly going up on the back porches.

Ladies and gentlemen, I can finally see the end of the tunnel.

Since an open roof option was chosen, the lighting system that we previously had wouldn't work. When it rained, the fixtures would fill up with water and the last time I checked water and electricity didn't mix.

We found the electrician via The Porch People and had him come out and do an estimate a few months ago. One of the last things I remember presenting to the rest of the board was his estimate but it took around three months to pull the trigger.

Truthfully there may have been scheduling problems as this is the high season for construction and home improvement work. Getting a construction permit in the city of the Chicago ain't exactly a speedy thing as well.

Then of course, that's not really my direct concern anymore is it?

I'm just happy the work is being completed and we can finally put a fork in this project.

Now if only paying for it was that easy.
