|Ceiling Fan Installation
I had the pleasure of helping a client complete the electrical wiring of a unfinished area of his home. Boy, was I surprised when he told me I was going to install this ceiling fan.
Check it out, what a beauty:
|I'd guess I've hung hundreds of ceiling fans, but this was the first Airplane Ceiling Fan! It really looked great. The installation was a little different, but the end result made me want to go hop in an airplane and take off. The client did a really great job with the flush can lighting and I hope to get some pictures of the final result. If you want to know more about this fan, just send me an email and I'll tell you more.|
