Trying not to trip the light fantastic

Remember the 12V lights for the ceiling that arrived in a cardboard box the size of a dustbin? Well today was the day of "installation" (the lights not the box). It's all about having four lights in the kitchen rather than two, great idea in theory. But is Dave the Rope as nifty with wires? Yes. 
 
Last night, some wood removed, marked off and ready for action...

Later on - more bits removed...
Getting down to business today, insulation visible...

 
Only one little mishap occurred, the holes drilled in the ceiling were a tad too small (too late to go back by then). So they needed a bit of filing down which created a lovely dusty mess to clean up later on. Well at least it was easy to see the layer of sh*t because this strange yellow thing in the sky was shining down on it all. 

And,, tonight the finished product...


Lovely job eh? It's bright enough in there to slice a cucumber by the millimetre now. As for the disco ball well that goes up next week.
 
Dave's enthusiasm for this project was catching. After the job was finished, he said he couldn't wait till it went dark so he could see the full effect, (me too), like a couple of kid's on fireworks night...
