That is unfortunate you are in this situation now. I hope you are able to find someone in your area willing to help you out.
From personal experience, it never works out very well for the legitimate lighting contractor when they don't specify and supply just the right material to fulfill their vision for the project and they usually get nickeled and dimed to death.

I agree with Tim. You would probably be disapointed in the results if you bought the materials and asked a seasoned designer to make do with what you had.

You stated the first guy was a hack and you bought what he said. If he is a trunk slammer I doubt his design is something you would be in awe over.

For the record the original guy was in theory not a trunk slammer and was recommended by a reputable lighting supplier in my area. I thought i was hiring a true professional. I agree if they guy did no know how to wire the system correctly or safely for that matter I would not be happy with the end result.

Lighting suppliers will recomend anyone who they think will buy product from them. They don't really care about the quality of the guy, they mostly just want to move product. There are few exceptions to this, but not too many. These supply house guys never see the work we do.

I agree. I went into an irri supplier looking for some supplies and he asked me if I would be willing to sub my lighting out to a landscaper whom he claims does excellent work. It just so happened the supplies I need were to correct one of this "recommended" landscapers jobs.

Supply houses will generally reffer to whomever is buying and buying alot.
