I’ve been working on the electrical layout and planning to keep wiring from the outside walls and inside the thermal envelope. We have one large wiring chase across the building ceiling and plan to have all the rest of the wiring done in interior walls.
Since we want to limit the penetrations in the ceiling I was planning to purchase sconce lighting instead of ceiling lights–except for a few chandeliers and ceiling fans. I found a sweet deal for “outdated” sconce lights on Craigslist. They were from a spa so there were several matching ones.
Turned out they only had 8 lights, but 2 were double. They were $10 each and I thought that was a very fair price. They are very much a “lodge” style. The spa they came from updated to brushed nickel modern sconces. They threw in all the new backplates from the replacement lights so must have just used their existing backplates. We are very happy with the style and the bargain and we will be able to have matching lights in the main areas of the house.
