Gentlemen, I have read the Sticky and do understand that I am out of place here, BUT this forum seems to be the most knowledgeable out of all others. I have been lurking reading up, using the search function, and taking notes from you all. I must say WOW! Members on this forum do amazing work and have an eye for design that I could only hope for. With that being said I am shamelessly requesting some newb advice on how to move forward with lighting my home. I know that I could get amazing results by hiring an expert, but I really get great personal satisfaction from DIY projects and the fact that I am a newly wed with a budget I need to keep costs down. Below I have pictures of my home, but know next to nothing about which lighting fixtures to go with, what wattage to use, transformer, wires, connections, etc. I have seen the Home Depot and Lowes lights and am hesitant to purchase for durability reasons. Any help would be appreciated as I know you don't have to answer as professionals. Thank you in advance.
