We don’t work with a lot of genral contractors. We have our reasons. Special shout out to @gordonconstruction He has been a true pleasure to work with. Professional and has a great work ethic. Which we find rare in today’s economy. If you need any work done locally we highly recommended him. Thank you chad. @pismo_robo #ihavethebestclients #sanluisobispo #centralcoast #howdoyoulikethemapples #hireaprofessional #wedolighting #doneright #remodelpro #goodpeople #805sparky #slosparky #poorboyapproved #blessed #ilovemyjob @stickermule #electrical #sparkylife #goodclientsrule #clientshoutout

Little LED step light upgrade. We originally installed these back in 2006. Oh how things change. We went with a 4000k bi pin 12volt lamp to match the rest of the lights in this modern beach home. #LED #shellbeach #slo #sanluisobispo #upgrade #doneright #pastjob #ohhowtimeflies #slosparky #blauet #itailianlighting #4000k @west_coast_lighting

So happy with this find from new shop in downtown #slo @thejunkgirls super good people and a rare find that I can’t wait to read. Circa 1952. First edition is 1935. I have always had a close connection with electricity. I love the raw power and how it works. Our love for electricity shows in everything we do. #popupshop #goodpeople #newfriends #holeinthewall #mustsee #datenight #rarefind #electrical #electricty #forthelove #oldskool #sanluisobispo #hireaprofessional #alwayslearning #wedolighting

Love this fixture by @inlitedesign. This is a 4.5 watt Nero fixture used on a large flag pole. Super easy to install and very clean. #landscapelighting #wedolighting #flagpole #hireaprofessional #lighting #centralcoast #805 #arroyogrande hats done by @leftcoasttshirtco @jason_faist #led #inground #howdoyoulikethemapples #electrical #workflow #poorboy
