This is for the lighting project at the church. Both interior and exterior solutions are being considered. If you want to see ideas added, please email me/Kim (firstname.lastname@example.org) and I’ll add them!
For the interior, we want to have the building well-lit on Wednesdays, but also during the week – to show the building is active and welcoming and warm.
Plan: provide light timers (see recommendation at the bottom) for the following areas. These are each important as they are easily spotted from the road/driveway. These should come on 1/2 hour before sunset and turn of year round at 11PM. It’s also desirable to have the carport lit every Wednesday from 1/2 hour before dusk until 10PM.
- ~$30 for Honeywell 7-Day Home Programmable Timer Switch (see link at bottom) * 8 = ~$250
- ~$$$ for electrician to install and configure for us. <-- NEED TO GET QUOTES
LOCATIONS FOR TIMERS:8 – Reader’s hallway (RH), auditorium (A), main foyer (F), carport, and RR (RR).
- Bathroom RH1
- First Reader’s Room RH2
- Second Reader’s Room – ALREADY HAS ONE
- Flower Room RH3
- Stained glass window flood A1
- Foyer hallway from front door only F1
- RR light RR1
- Clerk’s office RR2
- Carport C1
Possible light timers for the interior.
For the exterior, the plan is to install landscape lighting which plugs into the church’s power (not solar-powered). The goal is to light the front-facing exterior of the building to give a warm, welcoming, and attractive appearance. Install lights everywhere there’s a red dot (approximately 10) along the front curved wall, around the corner toward the double-doors, around the corner to the RR window. These lights should be placed in such a way to flood warm light up the exterior of the building.
