Fun install of 3 haiku ceiling fans for a great client. They wanted something clean and sleek. We highly recommend checking out @bigassfans and the @haikuhome ceiling fan. WiFi with Alexa control and very good looking fan. All built by hand and not mass produced. They have amazing customer service and stand behind their product. #fans #wedofanstoo #hireaprofessional #slosparky #poorboy #notyouraveragesparky #cominatya #lovemyjob #custom #slo #sanluisobispo #centralcoast #haiku #lovethiscompany #calpoly @pismo_robo couldn’t do it without you.

Erik is super knowledgeable, responsive, reliable, and outgoing. He is the kind of guy you want to work on your electrical needs. He has saved me a ton on my garage conversion to a studio unit in SLO which included: planning, wiring, subpanel and main panel upgrade working with PG&E, connecting fixtures and outlets, ect... I am a DIY kind of guy and Erik was there to give me a helping hand and insure it was done correctly and to code. I am lucky to have met Erik and his assistant Kyle. They will be on call for any future projects I have and recommended for any friends and family needing electrical work.

Murano Italian glass fixture for a great client of ours. When purchasing and custom light fixture who do you trust to install it the first time properly. Each piece was meticulously unwrapped, Checked and installed. The ceiling medallion was a last minute add by the client and adds a bit of elegance. #ihavethebestclients #doneright #poorboyelectric #slosparky #italianglass #sanluisobispo #arroyogrande #customlighting #hireaprofessional #cominatya #mancave #patience #wedolighting #ilovemyjob @pismo_robo #lighting #lightfixtures #muranoglass #whodoyoutrust #donerightnotcheap #love #cleaninstall

Erik and Kyle are the best. I would like to give them more stars, too. They installed a ceiling fan in our mobile home, and Erik was more concerned about...

I love when a client let’s us be creative with light. We used @diodeled 2.88watt per foot tape light in all 3 sections of the coffee bar with @lutronelectronics wireless controls.
