Headed toward electrical inspection

Ron Dahlke and the electricians are aiming to call for the inspection this week that allows us to turn on electrical power inside Emerald Hill.

Everyone’s pulling hard. We want to turn the lights on.

Above, Steve and Beau from Capstone Electric installed the track lights in what will be the model train room, aka bedroom 3. The light in the center of the ceiling is temporary — inspection apparently requires installation of a fixture, not a blank plate for the owner to come back later to install a ceiling fan, which is Steven’s plan.

All six fluorescent light fixtures are now installed in the ceiling of the garage.

The wireless doorbell chime from Ring, which works with the wireless doorbell from Ring, is now installed above the closet door in the entry hall. Steve the electrician converted the wall plug into an outlet before installing the chime.

Ron needed two vanity lights for bath 3. Steven drove to Lowe's to pick up these two beauties; we'll see if we keep them.

Steve the electrician shifted up and to the right the electrical outlet that Barry the plumber needs for the tankless water heater. Where it was originally located, the outlet would have been directly behind the tankless unit, making it impossible to plug in.

When the wind blows, these act like pipe organs, generating groans and howls that, honestly, are really annoying. Steven hopes the harmonics will disappear when the tankless unit is installed. We’ll see.
The power pole is ready at the back of the new garage bay to be connected to city service.
