Who doesn’t love a project that’s quick to complete and offers major impact?
With our new house we’ve been spending the last year on what seem like massive, slow moving projects. Besides refinishing the wood floors and sprucing up the shed, nothing else in the house really felt like we were actually finishing anything. Completed projects being few and far between made us feel like we wanted a quick and easy win this winter that wouldn’t break the bank.
When it comes to quick, easy, and generally inexpensive, there are few more impactful projects than low voltage outdoor landscape lighting. Everything you need is easily purchased, straight forward to install, and you don’t need to worry about electrocuting yourself since all of the wiring is low voltage. All you need is a vision, a plan, and a handful of hours.
If you’re not familiar with our new house, it’s a white clapboard house that’s about 108 years old. Its style is a mishmash of four square and late Victorian farm house with a giant wraparound porch. But most notably, its “front” is situated to the back to give it a great view of the water…
…while its “back” is actually the front and faces the road. This means that the road facing side of the house is full of interesting angles and details that surround a nice sized brick patio where we plan to spend many nights around the fire pit.
