Installing low voltage cable lighting in Dining rooms

The Dining room is the perfect place for low voltage cable lighting and other methods of conventional lighting. In the 70’s and 80’s many homes had chandeliers above the dining table for illumination.

These were fun and beautiful. Homes in the 90’s steered away from that design and integrated recessed lighting for a cleaner and more organized appearance.

Homeowners decided that they wanted ambiance in their dining rooms for special occasions. They started installing a main lighting source and a secondary lighting source with lower brightness.

Low-voltage cable lighting above the table and adjustable track lighting were some of the options that were widely chosen.

I just wanted to say that I love your website. My husband and I followed your instructions on building our own home. Most of the work we did ourselves, but not all. We saved $90,000 in labor costs and now have a beautiful home that we own.

I built my own home doing all my own labor. My house costs me around $70,000 for materials. It took me 8 months to build and is about 2,000 square feet. I didn't think I could do it, but your house web site encouraged me. I used all the info you had.

Thank you,

I can't thank you enough for your free information web site about home building. I was looking for Electrical wiring diagrams when I found your site. It was very helpful.

My wife and I lost our home to foreclosure but we kept a plot of land to start over. We are halfway through the construction of our house. Your website gave us hope to start over and build a house with low payments. We are in our late 60's but we find it rewarding to put so much effort into a project that will reward us for years to come.
