Bob is in Melrose, where landscape lighting is installed in the front and back yards using 12/2 wire in a continuous lead from the last light fixture all the way to the hub connecting solid-stem brass fixtures and 20-watt bulbs throughout the grounds. The yard is on a single circuit but could be wired as zones to turn lights on when it's dark, or to break up controls between the front, back, and side yards. The exterior is completely rewired for lighting and outlets while the inside gets radio-frequency-controlled lighting complete with scenes for different areas of the home. The children's room is reorganized with a double desk, toy storage, drawers, and bookshelves. The basement is completely finished with basement drainage, waterproofing, new subfloors, easy-stick carpet tiles, media-room recliners, audio and video systems, finished storage, a second bath with a macerating toilet and pump, laundry, and a small desk area. The entire basement is finished with a basement system that provides walls, trim, doors, and ceiling for a polished, sound-deadening new family room. The new furnace, central air, air purification, and on-demand hot water system are tucked behind finished walls where they function quietly to keep the entire house comfortable.
