Outlets and Switches Updates

December 23, 2008 at 4:17 PM (Home Improvement, Pets)

As we mentioned in a previous post, available here, our goal was to completely replace all of the outlets and switches in our larger living room this past weekend.  I’m happy to report that all of the outlets are done, however, the switches are another story.  One switch was successfully replaced, two were giving Ben trouble, and the others just didn’t get done.  After the holidays Ben is going to ask for some troubleshooting assistance from one of our neighbors or our friend Jon.  Stay tuned!  You can see a comparison of the old versus new hardware below.
