I have an old house (1889) that was built on stone walls / concrete. We have now pretty much scraped, sealed, waterproofed and painted it. We are now trying to actually move all of our stuff into it. The existing lighting consists of two, four foot florescent "boxes." Each box has room for four bulbs. Some work. Some don't I have tried to replace bulbs, but that is not working very well. One box comes on when I flip the switch, the other requires me to flip it about 10 or 12 times before the lights come on. This is annoying. Is the problem the bulbs or the fixture? I should probably replace at least this second box. Should I stay with the four foot florescent? Is there a special type of "basement" lighting I should look for? When I used this kind of lighting in an outdoor shed, the original installation did not include a fixture that could handle the extreme cold in the winter time and I had to replace them. I don't want to make the same mistake with the basement. Any special issues / concerns? I also want to add more lighting (the two boxes are not enough). Any special considerations / thoughts? Thanks.
