Doing the Can Can

Mike the Electrician and his merry men came in today and set the housings for the recessed lights, or cans. Now that there's wiring all over the place and several of the windows have been installed, it truly feels like the house is nearing completion.

All of the clerestory windows went in today, apparently without a hitch, although there were two windows scheduled for installation in the porch area that are 1" too wide for the available space. Looks like a framing problem to me, but what do I know? Either way, Hector the Framer will figure out a way to fix it.

The clerestory windows are two feet high by approximately 7' 6" wide. All of the windows are Jeld-Wen 500 Series, and the massive sliding doors, which will be installed on Monday, are Jeld-Wen Premium Series. The glass is all LowE-366, a fairly new and energy efficient specification which apparently "delivers the ideal balance of solar control and high visibility."
