I finally got around to putting up a couple lights in the garage. I salvaged these things from a storeroom I was tasked with cleaning out. They do a fantastic job of lighting up my garage.

And just to prove they work, here’s a picture of them on. I didn’t have to change the lamps or the ballasts. Which is pretty amazing, given the amount of handling they’ve endured.

nice and bright

I also replaced the two existing light fixtures with ceiling fan boxes. It gets crazy hot in the garage in the summer. My plan is to get a couple of old ceiling fans from the Habitat For Humanity Restore and put them up. This will give me more light and allow me to circulate the air in a way that doesn’t require me to knock over a box fan three or four times an hour.
