Jerry, what kind of inevitable failures can be expected by adding an interior "storm" pane of glass to an existing single pain? What has your experience shown? A quick read of the link you provided shows factory built double pane last 10-20 years with 12 years in the north (southern facing...

If dual pane windows are going to be utilzed in a site built situation it would be a good idea to design into them an easy way to replace when they fail (becuase they will). Having to tear apart structure to replace failed windows is not an ideal window in my opinion. If the 1x blocking (or whatever...

You should check out the interior he did at the Miller house in Columbus, Ind. I think you'd like it.

I like the choices and it sounds like you have spent a lot of time thinking this through...but, and just one mans opinion here, I am not sure of the layout of the slate. I'm assuming you'll lay them out to see how they look in your room before commiting to the running bond pattern. Here's a pic of o...

More information from the manufacturer: 50 watt was designed from the ground up, 90 degree, waterproof, 2500 lumens, color temp. is 6000k which is the only color they use for floodlights. The 198 is retrofitted halogen. So, I am looking at using the 50 watt (fourth one down in my link). http://www.l...

Yes, the spill was another reason for the leds. I heard back from the electrician, he says that code states that there must be 5 supports for the junction box, there are only 3 currently on the round skylights and 4 on the square. I'm trying to decide whether to change them at all now or just leave ...

Currently installed is 300 watts per lamp and let me tell you when they are on it looks like a football stadium from the outside:) Talk about spillage.

I've got a couple of spares, the connections (lamp base) look like old car headlights, two male tabs.

At 8.4 watts do you think that the "vista" would do the job of the existing 300 watt incandescent lamps? I see that one of the fixtures in the link I provided was designed from the ground up but hovers around 1000usd...a little too pricey.

Hopefully he can reproduce it (the look). Here is a link of a few fixtures...I'm thinking of using one of the 50 watt 110/240 lamps or the 198 marine flood. http://www.led-cfl-lighthouse.com/page/401659680 It would be great to be able to use one of the less expensive of the three.
