The jobs were so small that I had trouble finding an electrician. Thank goodness I know a dependable handyman. He's very honest and does good work.
The old post light was crooked and falling apart.
Frank the handyman estimated the job to cost about $100 if there were no problems. He wound up charging me $75. What an honest man. He also took away a rotting wooden swing and patched a banister while he was here, no extra charge!
This bright light operates with a motion detector. It makes it safer from a break in. The area is safe but we feel a little vulnerable in our somewhat hidden home. Maybe I'll get a security system someday but I don't think we need one right now. It's probably all the scary movies we watch late at night that stimulates our imaginations.
Anyway, now it will be easier to see our way into the house from the driveway at night and it looks good.
