Lighting Gymnastics

August 20, 2011. By lowdesign. 0 comment(s).

The central room in the house (kitchen and living areas) has a bigh sloped ceiling, ranging from 13 to over 20 feet tall.  For general lighting in these areas, we are suspending tracks from the ceiling, which proved tricky for us and for the electricians.  We had to prepare threaded rods with toggle bolts at specific heights so that the tracks could hang parallel to the floor.  The electricians had to get these toggle bolts into the ceiling drywall, run the cord down, and tweak from there in order to get the tracks level.  We got a couple days behind schedule because of this whole process, but we're excited to see the results.

Also suspended are pendants and ceiling fans, with more typical light installations in other rooms.
