6" can conversion to ceiling fan with medallion. We completely removed the can light and installed a fan rated box with new switch leg for power. By using the medallion we didn't need to due any drywall repair from the existing 6" hole. #anotherhappycustomer #slosparky #805 #slo #sanluisobispo #doneright @minka_aire #amazingfan #ilovemyjob #ihavethebestclients #electrical #sparky #outwiththeoldinwiththenew #allinadayswork #contractor #hireaprofessional #acropolislighting #fan #led #ledfan #conversion

We really appreciate Erik being able to squeeze us in on short notice even though he was booked out 6 weeks! He was thorough and efficient in replacing several GFCI outlets in our kitchen and then checking the others in the house to make sure they were working properly. He explained everything meticulously but also in a way that a non-electrician could understand! Thanks Erik!

What brand of bags/vest do you use? I came across the safety orange tool vest by vest tech and love them. Being that we work in finished houses tradition bags would hit door jams and scratch walls. This vest keeps all the essential tools I need tight to my body for easy access. Even includes a 90oz water pack for those hot days. Special thank you to @kingoftrades13 for the newest addition with the "killowatt" pin. If your looking for vest not so loud it also comes in black/grey. #toolvest #toolbags #safetyorange #loudandintense #fitsmypersonality #slo #slolife #slosparky #805sparky #sparkylife #vesttech @klein_tools #ilovemyjob #electriciansofinstagram #electricalgrind #imnotfatimfluffy @fluffyguy #bigguysrule

Late night install of 2.88 watt per foot @diodeled tape light in 3000k. Mounted in slim channel with frosted lens. This is a future Air BnB under cab in a 1973 airstream sovereign. The lights really make the custom slate backsplash pop and the quartz counter top sparkle.
