Hey everyone! Just wanted to get a quick poll on how many of you are getting the eye-ball recessed lights over your fireplace. I currently have this as an upgrade, but now I'm rethinking my decision and may go ahead and delete it. Here is why I'm recanting my decision:
1. The eyeball lights look a little 80-ish to me;
2. I plan to place a TV over the fireplace, will the light cause a distraction;
3. Do you think it is easier to do the lighting now, or wait later to get the smaller recessed lights, and is it cheaper etc?
Overall, I wonder why Ryan uses the 7 3/4 sized recessed lights? Is this size used because of the 9 ft ceilings on the first level? Looking forward to your feedback on this one. I know it's only a charge of $250 but maybe I should invest that in recessed lighting in the family room opposed to the "eyeball".
Also, next Friday we will have our Guardian appointment. I know we can't afford to do the security system--are we crazy for not getting this? Can someone give me the breakdown on what wiring is necessary to have in the house to make it wireless or can we just get a cable jack and run wireless through a cable company? I am so confused and really need help to be prepared for this meeting. I'm thinking we would just add 3 more cable jacks and be done with it--so help me out Ryan Blogger Family…give me a breakdown, and if possible what type of cost is associated with these upgrades. By the way, have any you asked Guardian to supplement a second phone jack for a cable jack? I would like to know what type of bargaining I should try with the sales rep of Guardian. Thanks!
