Electrician

Despite Colin’s amazing electrical skills, we had a professional electrician come round to check the electricity. It seemed a bit dodgy in parts, like where the mains wire came down the outside of one of the walls, protected only by wallpaper.

We also asked him to fit a light switch for the kitchen from the living room. There isn’t one there, but that doesn’t stop us from trying to use it. That means we’ll end up with a crazy three-way light switch.

The living room is quite long, and a single bulb light doesn’t seem quite bright enough to illuminate it all. We thought we’d have the light moved along to the living area and a separate light fitting added to the dining room part.

So now we have no wire running down the outside of a wall, and some wires sticking out the walls and ceilings.
