GFCI Outlets and a new Security Light

Day #47

October 6, 2018 – We took a week off for a wedding in York. Then a family vacation at Seneca Lake in upstate New York. It was a great time but now we’re back to continue the Cot-Taj-Mahal renovation project. The last time I posted I had started the temporary electric. Today I continued with the installation of two GFCI outlets and a new Security Light.

The GFCI outlets came complete, in a kit from Lowe’s (TayMac 1-Gang Rectangle Plastic Weatherproof Electrical Box Cover) for $27.98 each. I installed two of them. This gives me 4 outside outlets for the rest of the work.

The security light is an LED fixture with a motion detector and dusk to dawn sensor. It is by GoodEarth (Good Earth Lighting 180-Degree 2-Head White LED Motion-Activated Flood Light with Timer).
