How To Replace This Fixture?


I am assuming a scaffold would be the only way to remove the fixture SAFELY. Any recommendations?

I am in the Goodyear, AZ area....

Scaffold... PITA, I would have sold them one of these. http://www.aladdinlightlift.com/ That install is just senseless.

Of course, that will just take care of the "removal" part.

That would definitely work for the "replace" part of the job.

Sir MixALot:

I guess the natural question is:

What does the owner of that house do to replace the bulbs in the recessed light fixtures in the ceiling? Rent a scizzor lift to replace the bulb?

Why do architects do stuff like that? It's gonna cost $4 for a new bulb, and $300 per day to rent that lift to change the bulb. What's wrong with doing stuff that way?
