The House of Dr Frankenstein

One of the biggest motivators for undertaking such a major renovation was the fear of electrical fire - being built in 1912 means that our house still boasts the horror of knob-and-post electrical wiring. Over the past couple years several of the circuits in our house had had degraded to the point of constant flicker and some had even stopped working altogether, including the front hall and living room lights. A little annoying and scary to say the least.

Check out some of the alarming arrangements that we found hiding in the walls - they seem better suited to Dr Frankensteins laboratory then a home!

Needless to say, we will be sleeping a little sounder at night now that all of the knob-and-post wiring has been stripped out.
