    Pot lights???? Don't know these-would you please explain.

    Keep us posted. This has been fun watching the development of the space. A couple of years ago in my 'Performance Review' my Team Leader asked if I could have any job what would I choose; without a moments thought I responded, 'Either marine patrol or a home builder.' Her response was, 'Yep, I can see that.'

    best,

    Pot lights are smaller - usually 3-4" in diameter - lights that are recessed in the ceiling. I think they may also be called "can" lights in some places? They are flush with the ceiling. Hoep this helps!

    If I was 18 and coming out of high school today, I think I would like to learn how to go and build houses. I always found that really interesting.

On that pic, up at the top, it looks likes there's a hurricane clip there? or something to secure the pieces...my guess would be they skipped a clip(if that's what it is)...or something along those lines...codes regulations designate everything from the number of fasteners in each application, to the spacing, etc...so the crews go along at a fast clip, and the boss comes in behind them and check, and marks!!
    Thank you Donna! That is a great explaination. Yes, this was mass-produced tract housing, so the idea of the foreman coming along and inspecting the work and noting areas for repair makes a lot of sense!

    I too had my outlets at cabinet island height. It does make a difference. It is so much easier to plug in the iron,
    and smaller appliances. You will be in sewing room heaven when it is finished.

    I'm so excited for you. I know you can't wait. I too am in the process of getting a small sewing room and I'm excited to have my own place to sew and embroider. Hang in there, cause I know waiting is the hard part.
