Dining Room – The Restoration – Ceiling Preparation For New Wiring

SAMSUNG DIGIMAX 360

We removed the ceiling fan.  It was basically just screwed into the ceiling with a surface mounted bracket.  No fixture box, at all.  We had heard a story about how the ceiling fan fell down on to the dining table of some people that were renting the house.  I’m not really surprised.

In order to install a fixture box, I had to open up a bit of the ceiling.

Looking up into the opening, you can see the old knob & tube wiring.  This is the wiring that was supplying the ceiling fan.  Also, if you look closely, you can see the old gas piping.

This is a shot inside the ceiling cavity, facing west.  The old wires and the gas pipe is visible.
