From the album: Victoria's FarmhouseI'm using cir-kit NOS (new old stock) plugs and outlets with covers for the first time. Thanks to posts on this forum that showed me what I was missing. SO much smaller! I think I'll like the modern "1004" plugs better though. These need a spot of glue.

Hello! I THINK I want to wire my Beacon Hill (bought used so renovating, not made from kit) I have the large cir-kit tape wire kit unused from my voyage to minis years ago. Honestly it scares me to pieces to think of doing it, but I bet once I start it's easier than it sounds! BUT the problem is that I wasn't planning to wire it, and I've glued panels to the walls of the main foyer room! They are not floor to ceiling, but are only 3 inch by 1 inch panels, glued about half inch from the floor. Since they stick out I don't think I can just tape wire over top of them. I know you're supposed to be about an inch or inch and a half from the floor, and consistent throughout the house, so I'm not sure how or if I could wire it now. None of the other rooms have had anything done. I have wallpaper for the main entry and a few other rooms, so I need to figure this out before I move forward. How can I make it work? Could I tape the left and right rooms all the way around in the traditional way, and then the entry just for a chandelier?? Could I wire that one room just above the panels? (By going around the bottom of the left/right, then up that wall, into the foyer above the panels, around the foyer, add ceiling wires, then down the wall of the right/left and around the lower area of that room?) Also, can I wire it now, then decide lighting placement later? Or do I need to know exactly what lights I'm using and where they are going before I wire???? And, one more, how obvious are the plugs for lights when you use them?? Do they plug into the house wall similar to how they plug into a real wall? I can't visualize how it works when I know there are wall sconces too, and where those wires go. Thanks!!!
