13 year old mr16 can trims converted over to LED. We fully rebuilt 25 of these trims by removing the magnetic transformer and installing a LED pigtail. These LED trims by @elitelightingcorp have an added stainless steel trim that can be replaced when the ocean air destroys them over time. #hardwork #ilovemyjob #ihavethebestclients #beachwork #jobwithaview #shellbeach #pismobeach #sanluisobispo #centralcoast #slosparky #hireaprofessional #electrical #workflow #ledlights #canlights #outsidelighting #poorboylighting #outwiththeoldinwiththenew #upgrade #outwitholdtechnology #stainlesssteel #lighting #killinit

How do you keep your tools organized? I love the new @milwaukeetool #packout system with @kaizen_inserts. I used the small packout just for my M12 tools and batteries. I love the placement for the @milwaukeetool #tick for tracking so I always know where it is. No matter what packing system you have ... check out @kaizen_inserts. These guys are amazing. Super custom and really easy to cut out and install. #slosparky #805 #805sparky #toolorganizer #ilovemyjob #milwaukeetoolsforthewin #ilovemilwaukee #m12 #nbhd #nbhdteam #gotbatteries #amanandhistools #gpstracking #cleanlife #redlife #foam #organized #centralcoast #sanluisobispo #hireaprofessional #contractor #electrician #electrianlife

Kable systems are one of my favorite systems install. Simple, clean and elegant. The straight lines with the curve of the pendants really set it apart. #losossos #slo #sanluisobispo #techlighting #soraa #kablelighting #cablelightning #ihavethebestclients #acropolislighting #thankful #allinadayswork #ilovemyjob #sparkylife #slosparky #hireaprofessional #kitchendesign #kitchenlighting #kitchenlightingonpoint #islandpendants @pismo_robo @pat_brady

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
