Time to go Shopping!

I'm not as thrilled about this as the exclamation point in the post title might lead you to believe.

The solution to the electrical plans, uh, issue I mentioned yesterday is for Karl and I to go shopping for specific light fixtures that will fit in with the Title 24 requirements.  For us, that apparently means we can't have more than 1,115 watts being used for lighting for the entire bar.

Our engineer guy originally specified 35w low voltage halogens for some of the fixtures.  But, when he tried to find the fixures online, he, too, found that 35w low voltage halogen light fixtures of that type don't exist.  So, we go shopping.  Yay.

We have to come up with a lighting plan that will not use more than 1,115 watts for the entire bar.  Shouldn't be too dififcult but will probably involve some calculus-type calculations.  (Ok, that might be a bit of a stretch but should work out alright.)

In every construction project, there is probably something that should have been done much differently than it was done.  (It was that way for us when we got our house; though, I now forget what that was.)  The electrical plans and design are probably that aspect for this project.  But, no worries.  It'll all work out in the end.
