New homes in the early seventies were just wired differently. The short version is: they thought over head lights were evil. As a result, our master bedroom had an overhead fan without a light and a wall switch that powered one of the electrical outlets in the room (meant for a lamp). Our bedroom happens to be the room where I learned how to replace old electrical outlets and that electrical outlet attached to the switch might not work any more. We’ve been making due with the hallway light and the TV to light our bedroom at night.Today’s the first day we,ve had a working light in our master. Light is good. I missed it. Here’s the before and after.
