Electric Eye
Mounted some place where it "sees" the night sky and is not affected by exterior lights; suitable for fluorescent, incandescent, or other type bulbs; supplies power to all exterior lights (security lights, parking lot light, and deck lights); can be overridden by switch B2 in entry hall

Security Lights {and what switch controls them}
All fixtures supplied by us, installed by electrician; all controlled dusk-to-dawn by electric eye (above) if left on (as intended); all use energy efficient screw-in compact fluorescent bulbs

Note: The 3 wall fixtures and parking lot light (below) are to be mounted on face of waterproof electric box which itself is mounted flush on wall (with small hole in wall behind box for wire feed.)

Parking Lot Light {controlled by switch B1 in entry hall}

How exterior lights will illumine the grounds

Ground Floor

The ceiling of large "museum room" will be open; ceiling cables probably have to be metal-sheathed BX.  We have not yet decided if museum walls will be covered or left open.

All other rooms will have walls and ceilings completely covered; all cables can be Romex.

Entry Hall

Fixtures {and what switch controls them}

Switches

Position A (just to right of entry door, on doorknob side) 3 switches, from closest to furthest from door:

A1 track light on entry hall ceiling
A2 security light on porch ceiling just outside entry door
A3 (2-way) 2 lights on stair landings, 2 in upper hall (with switch H1 at top of stairs)

Note: This represents a change from the wiring installed in 2006, which is as follows:
A1 security light on porch ceiling just outside door
A2 (2-way) light in entry hall, 2 lights on stair landings, 2 in upper hall
By the way, this in spite of our direction to keep entry & stair lights separate.

Position B (just to left of entry door, on hinge side) 2 switches, from closest to furthest from door:

B1 exterior parking lot floodlight
B2 electric eye override (to force lights on in dim light, or to easily test bulbs)

fire pull (higher than switch, above)

Position C (by handicap lift)

C1 (2-way) light at top of handicap lift shaft (with switch H2 at top of stairs)

The large "multipurpose room" will have all walls completely covered, but ceiling open; wall cables can be Romex, but ceiling cables probably have to be metal-sheathed BX.

All other rooms will have walls and ceilings completely covered; all cables can be Romex.

Basement

The large room will have its long side walls bare (cement foundation) and the end walls covered (drywall); wall cables can be Romex (there are none on the cement walls.)  The ceiling will be open; ceiling cables probably have to be metal-sheathed BX.

The two smaller rooms are not intended for access by the public.  They will be accessed only by historical society employees and volunteers.  All exterior walls will be bare cement, and all interior walls covered by drywall.  Ceiling will be drywall in the utility room, and open in the archive room.  We do not know what type cable should be used for these rooms.
