Let there be light
It is Piscean full moon tonight, and I feel like Diwali has come early. The final fix electrical was completed yesterday bar the rangehood and aircon connections…. and now we can see what the interior looks like (in something other than sunlight or spotlights that is).
A few months back, Matty said he had a surprise for me. I was curious at the time, but eventually forgot about it (my bad!). Two nights ago I came home from work, to be told that my surprise is ready!
He took me into the house and turned on a switch that I wasn’t fully aware of. Three lights slowly started to get brighter from within the central Ironbark beam (the beam that runs across the main living space and over the fireplace). He had run a cable through it in December when the Ironbark beam was placed into its permanent position… long story short, he never ceases to amaze me.
The effect of the dimmable lights is of course romantic, and cosy; casting enough light to be sitting in front of the open fireplace with good company…and perhaps some good wine! It is hard to capture the ambience of it via screen, so I don’t have any good photos of it.
Other work is progressing on the house; but let’s leave that for now and enjoy the glow…
