Finally, five trips later, the electric company installed the chandelier from the ceiling in the ground to first floor staircase. I was told by the older electrician guy we had on the first four visits that it would take about 1.5 hours. Amazingly, it was accomplished in about 20 minutes by two young guys that could have been my sons. Honestly, I wish they had sent these youngsters several visits ago because I'm thinking the job would have been finished in a more timely manner. They had no qualms about shimmying across a board held in place by two ladders to get the fixture attached. Oh to be young and fearless and fast!
