So, after coming up with the electrical plan for where the wires needed to go, the next step in creating a problem-free wiring plan was to solder the tapewire at each intersection:
|Several solder points on this wall.|
Step 2: cover all solder points with a layer of spackle.
|Multiple solder spots covered.|
|The two solder spots on the wall are covered, smooth, and blend right in.|
|You can barely tell where the electrical tape is, never mind where the solder spot is!|
As you can see in the first photos posted above, the customer had previously painted the ceilings and walls. Some walls were yellow, some tan, some a deep olive green. But she was not happy with the paint colors and there were spots of color on the white ceiling where her paint brush had obviously accidentally strayed. And the interior window trims were either a combo of color paint over hastily primed wood or not even primed fully before they had been installed.
|Yellow paint got on her window trim.|
|This window trim was never painted before being installed.|
And those were the steps we took to wire and prepare this house for decorating!
