Lighting supplies has arrived

MLI Designs

It took me a little while to get back to work. Ya know, it's gardening season and I'm only in my house 1.5 years so tons to do. 

But this farmhouse flooring will be throughout entire first floor, including kitchen.  I think it looks pretty good. Not sure if I should touch the nail posts on each floorboard with black paint. What do you think?

its hard to believe this tiny box of lighting supplies cost $120 and I have not light fixtures yet. Oh boy, this is going to be interesting.

You're braver than I am , I just got a set of battery operated LEDs, and all my lighting isn't going to be complicated like yours is. I bet  you'll do a wonderful job with them!

I'm curious as to how you wlll hook up all the LED lights to an outlet and where.  It's all too overwhelming to me.

@carlie67 the biggest challenge seems to be where the central outlet bar is placed and how to run the wire through the house. I've watched so many videos and most of the houses they are doing the round wire on have a back that isn't viewable. That doesn't help me.

They did say to cut grooves in the walls and flooring the place the wires in. Trying to figure our where those wires will go is a bit time consuming. I just sit and look at the house. 

And of course, the biggest thing is having all the lights. The light fixtures I really like are very expensive so I have to rely on making them which is time consuming. I feel like that is holding me up as far as getting the interior walls and flooring done.

all in all, the round wire is pretty clear cut. I was overwhelmed thinking about doing the copper tape.
