Did you fix the light yet?
The city inspector was here this morning. The first question he asked after exchanging pleasantries was about the closet lights. A comment was registered on our permit by the electrical inspector six months ago that the recessed lighting in the closet was not code. He told me then that a recessed light's light bulb must be covered with a glass lens, or the light bulb could be replaced with a sealed beam.
"Did you fix the recess lighting in the upstairs closet?"
"What? Oh, you mean replace the light bulb?"
"Did you fix it?"
"Umm, well, no."
"Well" he said slowly "this is going to be a short inspection."
He was right, it was a short inspection. So, I absolutely positively must replace three recessed light fixture trims with ones that include a glass lens. I now have 6 months to get this done. I think I can do that.
