Of course my boss has decided that I can be her flunky for now and I do not see where I really get to argue the point. I have managed to get things working very well in my department and I have fixed it so that there are people who can replace me and everyone else there. Today I went to an Irvine shutters place, bought the ones that she wanted and then took down the ones on her new house and replaced them. She is actually pretty smart. This place looked a terrible mess when she bought it, but she seems to have known that she had me to fix a whole lot of the minor stuff, and that she would have the place looking great shortly. It is not as though she intends to live there. She is going to put the place back on the market in a few weeks. The kitchen is renovated and so are both of the bathroom. We ripped out the carpets and refinished the hardwood floors that we found under them.
At any rate I am not sure what to think about how well the department has run while I have been out doing all sorts of other things. It is hard to say that she is doing anything wrong I guess. I work for the company and for all that it can be seen, she is the company. So she can really pay me to do whatever she wants to pay me to do. In fact this is a different company though. She has at least three of them that I know of. One of them is actually not supposed to make money. It is a consignment store and it works a whole lot like a tax dodge as far as I can tell.…
Lighting can take a lawn from simple to spectacular simply by using some well-placed lighting. The chosen lighting technique can completely transform the look of your home after dark. There are many types of effects to choose from, depending on taste or function. You may want to go for some dramatic shadows and silhouettes or you may prefer a subtle glow to provide a romantic mood. Browse exterior lighting Overland Park online to see all the options available for landscape lighting.
Getting the desired effect depends on several things: how you want to use the lights, where you want the lights installed and if they are for aesthetic or practical use. Ask yourself the following questions before finalizing your plan.
Is your yard very small and easily seen from the street? This may be the easiest to plan. Is your yard placed very far back from the street? If your goal is for the effects to be visible from the front of your property, you may want to plan for more dramatic techniques. A very steep or rocky terrain may require careful planning and installation. If your desired result is to see the effects of your unique landscape from your home at the top of an incline, you’ll have to situate your lights differently than if you want to see a dramatic look from a distance or from the bottom of the hill.
Perhaps you have a home in a beautiful, secluded area, surrounded by heavy trees and foliage. You may want to take safety and security into consideration. Whether you use bright motion-detecting lights, wall washing effects that light up dark areas around doors and windows or a combination of those and other security lighting methods, there are numerous ways to illuminate your property for beauty and safety.
This is a very important component of your project. You may have grand plans for spectacular illumination but you won’t get far if you only have the budget for the basics. Do your research before you set your heart on a plan.
