    The search engine SPIDERS do crawl this site. I have sold jobs where the client stumbled across this site and found me.

    Here is boulder mounted light I did about 5 years ago. It is a 12 volt conversion also and is tied into the other accent lights in the landscape. I think I read a comment from someone disregarding 12 volt systems. I would simply say to you, that you have never seen a properly installed 12 volt system or you definitely wouldn't say that.

    I like that boulder!

    Mind telling us about how the lantern is mounted. I mean, does it have bolts drilled and bolted to the boulder, or is there more to it? Also how is the cable routed? Only problem I could see is the boulder breaking apart from heavy drilling?

    I live in a wooded setting and something like that would be perfect for my residence.
