Tomwillight,

I understand your comments, I actually did my own lighting while I'm sure it's not as exact as a professional install it really was a pleasure to do. In the past years the only issue I have is the periodic need to change a bulb. The questions I have for you is

1 do you paint your own house or hire a painter?
2 do you change your own oil and plugs or do you take it to a mechanic?
3 do you cook your own food or go out to dinner every night?
4 do you cut your own grass or utilize on of the great guys on this forum?

I was able to do my own lighting mainly from the comments that the great people on this forum. Its obvious they were not so afraid that if they shared a lighting comment everybody and their brother would be starting a lighting buisness.

Good luck and I hope that someday you may be able to better yourself on the wisdom of others, that is unless your a narcassitic ass.

erocbl,

I'm truly sorry that you took my light-hearted reference to Home Depot as some sort of a personal insult. Frankly, it saddens me every time I see homeowners who have wasted perfectly good money buying "solar" lighting from a big box store.

As for our willingness to share information in this forum; I find the quantity and quality of the information available here to be truly amazing. As you alluded, it was through your free access to many hundreds of years of experience that you were able to create a lighting design for your own home and enjoyed doing it. Congratulations and you are welcome.

Tom

Tom,
I owe you the apology, I read your intent wrong. One of those days, I took it personal which now is obvious was not the intent.

Take care and good luck to you

Hello,

We moved into a house recently and the house is the only one on the block which does not have outdoor lighting. I have been reading this forum for a while now and have some ideas for placement of lights but am trying to nail down what exactly needs to be where. I have some pictures of the property I would be more than willing to share if some one could help me out. Thanks!

Just pm me!
