be very careful, we have a 97 HOL, what are you going to attach it too ? we cant even put in ceiling fans because there isnt 2x4's near the lights !!!!

what changes have you made '? we have changed everything, and we are in the process of remodeling the kitchen,,,,,,
what other problems have you found '
? i will check back here, to see if there is a reply,
i know how you can check ? you can take a light fixture down and then see what it the ceiling is.
let us know, im interested in other HOL owners!

ours is a 28x80 legacy model. we had a bar dividing the kitchen and dinning room... we took the bar out and totally redid the kitchen.. i will try and post pics of the things we have done. we have ceiling fans in the dinning room, kitchen, living room, den, and our master bedroom. ours is a 5 bedroom, and out of the other 4 bedrooms, only 1 was able to have a ceiling fan. the others didnt have enough support rafters for them, they spliced a piece of 2x4 for the light box, and it is unstable, and able to be moved. we have painted every room, and wallpapered some. we are replacing faucets with standard fixtures as they go bad or we remodel. we have just replaced the hot water heater last month. i will post pics in the kitchen forum this week. you can email me if you have any questions. have you had any roof issues ? a couple of hurricanes damaged ours. and we are needing a new roof.
do you have pics of your ceiling ? if so post here or email me, i bet you have the same rafter problem as i do, and they have shirfted,,,, i will let me hubby read this and we will brain storm,,
keep us posted,, its nice to hear from other HOL ppl.
