Sure, I had to buy him a boat to get it, but Joe let me order the office light fixture I wanted. In retrospect, I should have gone for a couch instead.
First I discovered missing and damaged parts, and had to wait a week while the replacement parts were mailed. Then we had to figure out the wiring. Once we actually began, it took us four hours to install it. Four hours of struggling against a recessed electrical box over my head (arms are still killing me), by candlelight.
And there’s still one problem. I’ve been going with CFL-compatible fixtures as we renovate. But unlike the others I’ve bought, this one has a significant delay, like three seconds, between when you flip the switch and when the light goes on. It’s driving me nuts. They make the same light in an incandescent version, and it’s cheaper, but thinking about un-installing it makes me want to cry.
So, what do you think?
