Today, we took an opportunity to install a new strip of LEDs up on the under side of the steel RSJ part of the Skylight. We wanted to rearrange some of the 100W floodlamps that were previously positioned to shine down lighting up the ground floor but that was before we had built the First Floor structure. So we bought a 45m length mains rated LEDs strip, we actually ended up with only 28metres (we got the difference refunded!) and we started at the North end of the house (over the Bedroom Three and Utility rooms) and split the strip into two lengths of 14metres to go down both sides of the Skylight. We used the 12mm thick plywood that we got installed up inside our Skylight and drilled a series of little holes for cable ties to clamp the LEDs strip up on the edge. We just managed to reach the fat steel legs (number 1 and 7).

Then unconnected four 100W LED floodlamps from various places and got them installed over the Great Room to shine down over our work and saw benches. We used the Ground Floor lighting circuit to connect these lamps so we now have a very well lit work area in our Great Room and a pretty good illuminations upstairs too.

We may have to put in a couple more lamps in the last rooms downstairs like the Kitchen, Bedroom One and the Entertainment Room so we can continue to work in the dark evenings now.
