(I signed the contract on May 4th.) It's looking good. Today the electrician and electrical inspector came. Passed inspection. Fan and lights are up, but the lights no longer dim (and they are very bright). The fan works great, though.
They were also supposed to install a fan here in the "computer room" today but their electrical parts supplier didn't have a part, so an electrician will come back next Saturday to install the fan and also to replace the dimmer in the kitchen.
Now I can wipe out all the cabinets and start putting stuff back inside them.
