We went out to the property today to check out what has been done. On Thursday we did our "pre-electrical walk-through". The walk-through involved validating the placements of outlets, switches, and lights, as well as their positions. We added a couple of fluorescent lights in the five-car garage, a couple of lights on the corners of the house, and a few critical outlets. Oh yes, a dedicated 110 volts line for the Christmas tree...we tend to use a few thousand lights on our tree.
The pictures today include some outside shots, and some interesting (I think) geometry shots showing the air-conditioning (A/C) duct-work through the rafters. The time of the picture-taking was 1:00 PM CDT (13h00) -- more on that later. Here are the pictures:
|A sunny day at Leaning Oak. I shoot from this perspective so I will have|
a constant source of reference as the house construction develops.
|The A/C duct-work in the master bedroom.|
|This is the duct-work in the Great Room. The bright shining surface in|
the right of the picture is a thermal barrier, as it is the portion of the
cathedral ceiling which extends beyond the roof.
|The duct-work above the wine grotto, but it is part of the house A/C, and|
not that for the wine grotto itself. That will come later, maybe next week.
|This is the Great Room at the time of these pictures. Note there is plenty of|
natural light, but no direct sunlight.
