The electrician has been here this week working on getting the wiring done on our extension. Do you know how hard it is to figure out where you want lights and power points and switches when all you have nothing but an empty box?

Cables, cables everywhere
It's damn hard! We sat down with the plans and marked out where we thought we would like lights, then we figured out the most logical places to put the light switches. Apparently it's not the end of the world if we're not spot on but it is much easier to do all the cabling at this stage than it is down the track when you have pesky things like walls to deal with.

I have to tell you, power points are tricky little buggers. To begin with they are ugly and I don't like them, but unfortunately we need them! Also, thinking logically about where your kitchen appliances will go is not so easy when the kitchen isn't there yet. Hopefully we did okay! Everyone told us to put in more than we think we will need, so are going to be a hell of a lot of power points in this dear little house!


  1. You have to watch electricians - because they're so *technical* they tend to take you too literally - I asked for my bedroom ceiling light to be "in the middle" - it is, in the middle of the ceiling, but I wish I'd/he'd thought of putting it between the 2 windows, inches different but its still bugging me!

  2. Yeah, there were a couple of little mistakes (likely due to my vague red 'x' marks scrawled on the plans), but as the ceilings aren't in yet it is an easy fix.

  3. ooo - i was wondering about the house reno - i missed this one from my feed.
    very exciting.
    yes - put in more than you think you'll need.
    very good advice!
