Following along with Brady and Jenna on their Home Building Journey, next up: their electrical walk through. After meeting with our design specialists for a second meeting to select their interior selections, Brady and Jenna met at their home with Heidi and their electrician, Adam with Aurora Electric. Check out part one through five of the Meyers’ home building journey.
Electrical Walk Through
Our house has officially started to go up and we look forward to seeing the changes each day on our family car ride! Prior to our electrical walk through, we were given a list of potential electrical upgrades to look through in advance. Some of these choices we had already made and some we added that day.
Once the entire house was framed, we met with Heidi and Adam, our electrician, to walk through the house and make electrical choices. Our electrician was very knowledgeable about the standard number of outlets that needed to be in each room and the placement for switches, outlets, and lights.
Armed with a black Sharpie, he began marking where everything would go! When we weren’t sure about something, he always gave his honest opinion to help with our decision making. We knew going in to this walk through that we wanted to add canned lighting in the living room and family room, but he aided in where they should actually go to be the most functional.
The most challenging (and slightly stressful) choice for me was where to place our dining room light fixture. We had the measurements of our table, so Heidi and Adam helped us map out its location in order to make sure that our light fixture would be centered!
This may sound like a lot, but we were able to accomplish all of this over my lunch hour! Along with being knowledgeable, they are also extremely efficient in guiding these decisions with their expertise! Its days like this that we were incredibly thankful for the team that surrounded us so that we left feeling confident with our choices rather than overwhelmed and unsure! As always, their goal is to make sure that you’re making the right selections for YOU, not just what’s considered standard.
