What would it be like to have a vent in the bathroom? A light or ceiling fan in the living room? To have an air conditioner cooling down the bedroom on a hot summer night? Or to have enough light to see the entire basement? These are the small things I dream of, yet I know that these projects are likely to involve replacing ceilings, repairing walls and repainting rooms, at the very least. These are the hidden costs of the project to rewire (at least in part) the house. But the place would be so much more liveable afterwards.
