We Have Light! (Video)

When you buy a house without ever having actually seen it in person, it’s reasonable to expect a few little surprises to come your way…and yup: on our first night in our new place, I discovered something pretty unexpected.

There was no light.

Like, none.

So within a day of our arrival, I embarked on a fairly major renovation project that ended up making a MAJOR difference in how the house looks and feels.

P.S. For those of you in the Bay Area, the Thumbtack pro I hired for this project was Richard Acero of RPA Electric, and he was phenomenal: careful, efficient, and just a straight-up nice guy.

P.P.S. If you missed the first four videos in my Thumbtack series, here they are:
