Morris! Fantastic, you're getting my light fitting up.
Yeah, it's a pretty special one, Mick. What's it made of?
It's actually made of a bamboo plywood actually. It comes in different finishes, I've gone with the white here. I think it'll look fantastic when it gets up there.
Yeah, it's going to make a pretty special pattern on the wall. We're almost finished putting it up.
Right, yeah really close Okay so where will I turn it on or off?
I'm just going to connect it to the existing switch plates. You've got an existing two way at the top and the bottom of the stairs. So obviously if you come up at night you can turn it on or if you're having people over you can turn it on from upstairs as well.
And can I add a dimmer because it's going to add a bit of a mood to this room? Can I get a dimmer to that?
As long as we put a dimmable bulb in there Mick, year of course we can add a dimmer to the existing switch plate.
All right well I can't wait for it to get up there so I'll let you get back to it.
Well done Mick that's a pretty spectacular light fitting mate.
Looks fantastic mate yeah, absolutely. I'm really looking forward to seeing what it looks like at night and what sort of patterns that it throws. I mean it's meant to sort of enhance the architectural details of this house so, really interested to see what it looks like.
Yeah well, why don't you turn around on the wall there and see what you think?
Oh yeah, that's going to be great at night. I can't wait to be outside and have a look at it. Looks fantastic mate you've done a great job.
Yeah thank you, looks good
Well, I might let you finish up.
