Wall Sconces and adapters -Rookie mistake

Recommended Posts

OH MY.  I'm a doof.  I took a loooong break from minis and am firing it up again, but have had to refresh on many things.   I did the biggest rookie mistake. i spent so much wasted time meticulously installing wall sconces  so the wires were under wallpaper and just realized they make ADAPTERS for them. i'd only done ceiling lights and wall plugs.  :dunce: duh me.  They look good but such a royal pain to noodle it all through the hardest way possible.  ugh

Personally, I dislike the adapters. They always come loose on me and I wish I had wired them directly under the paper.

Well, I had a heckofa time working with the adapters!  I did kinda get in the groove and can do them ok, but if I ever have to do them on an inside wall again (like at a fireplace), I am going to drill a hole and thread the wires thru and make the connections on the wall behind!!

      I have searched the forums and cannot find the answer, so here I am!
      Hi Everyone!!!
      I am working on a front-opening Country Victorian dollhouse. When I received it, someone had already wired the front opening with the tapewire and made sure that it was connected to the hinges.  Now, my issue is, I have no clue as to how to start the regular tapewire process and how to connect the two.  Do I go ahead and put the junction splice and tapewire in the house as normal, but connect the new tapewire run to the hinges that already have the tapewire?   
      I checked the handy dandy Greenleaf Gazette and only see an article for hybrid wiring and not tapewiring with a front opening-like how do you start after the front-opening has already been done?
      Here are pics of what I mean...
      Thanks everyone, truly appreciated. I can't continue to put this house together for my cousin until I get it wired correctly!! :-) *And I am up for the challenge!!!
      **I hope this makes sense!

      Help! I started my first dollhouse and FINALLY got to a finishing point after about a year and a half. There are still a few minor things that need done but it’s finished enough for now (I needed to finish it by Xmas for my daughter). I have made dozens of little 1:24 models in the past and am a little knowledgable in electrical (aircraft electrician over a decade ago) but have since become rusty in the topic. I opted to install 6, small LED lights into the dollhouse, connected by a series of 9v batteries. Since my other smaller models have included similar setups with the LEDs and batteries, I didn’t think this would be an impossible task. I have ordered 9V lights and hardwired them into the house, connecting them in series to 6, 9v battery housing and a switch. It had seemed a bit of overkill to me, since the smaller models often used a single AA battery for often up to 4-5 bright lights. Except, it was very dim (which I don’t mind too much, as it’s more for effect anyway) and lasted maybe 30 minutes before dying. I’m lost now on what to do. I would have to completely cut into the house and moulding to replace the wiring. Thoughts? Did I completely mess this up? Help!! I will try to post pictures of the setup.

      You might like to look @ this if you were lucky enough to get a doll's houses at Christmas
