One of the better things that happened to us when we were building our new home, was finding Jillian Pool of Creative Lighting in Eltham. The architect did a great job of our plans which we took to Jill and spent a considerable period of time with her discussing all aspects of the electrical work - not just the lighting, but placement of power points, switches, fans, provision for outdoor power and lighting with a view to security, etc, etc. This included automatic light sensing (pantry, walk-through areas) and a myriad of things that we didn't even know
we had to consider.
Our builder (who in this instance will remain nameless) scoffed at the incredibly detailed electrical plan provided by Jill, stating that all we needed was lights in a straight line and all would be good. Are we glad we insisted on them sticking to the plan! For instance, kitchens are always a bit of a bugbear, given that the worst thing to happen in having to work in your own shadow. The solutions and plan provided by Jill are the envy of our friends!
We are tickled pink we found Jill and Creative Lighting!
