Sillites or other alternative
I am very anti-cords all over the place so when I saw the sillites and their pretty candles that fit right in a windowsill with no cords, I was very excited. I had grand visions of my "Christmas switch" which would turn all of these lights on and off like magic. Well, today the electrician gave me a price for wiring these (doesn't include the lights themselves) and it is $60 per light. This translates to $1320 (remember, I still have to purchase the lights) --- YIKES! My husband about fainted before he said to forget it. Anyway, I hate to completely give up the dream, so now I am trying to figure out how to cut that expense down. I am thinking about maybe just skipping the switch (don't know what this would save), or maybe just doing the fancy candles in the main body of my house? My question is, (I know it is crazy to worry about this in general, but accepting I'm already there) how would it look to have the candles on only in the center body of the house. Here is a pic of the house framed: It would be 4 windows on the first floor, 5 on the second.
The 3rd floor dormers, could I get away without putting the candles there?
Anybody have any other great wiring ideas or products that might work instead of this expensive wiring scheme?
