A few words here, but its a pretty simple job. I have a couple photos too but can't work out how to attach to the job

I will be around all week from 19th August until 27th August, so i'm pretty flexible but I would like the whole job done in one go obviously

1. Replace 2x existing downlights with new LED plug-in variety, and install 2 more.

The existing holes in the roof are too large, so I need 4x power points installed in the roof cavity for the downlights so that I can cut new holes and install.
I will supply these lights, you can supply/install the cabling + powerpoints

2. Install pendant light in centre of the room

There is also a central fan/light which runs on an IR remote control. I want to switch that out for a big pendant light/chandelier
I have the pendant light good to go + instructions + all the fittings that were supplied, really just needs to be changed, and disconnect power to the fan circuit I assume

3. Change wiring setup to suit new setup - easier to understand with the pics

The current setup has 1x single switch on left wall, and 1x double switch on the right wall. They are all connected to the existing downlights individually (i.e left wall switch controls left light, right wall switch controls left and right lights), and the fan runs on a remote control. The remote receiver is stuffed and I want to just get rid of that element completely

I would like to see the 1x single left wall switch control ALL of the downlights, and the double wall switch control ALL of the downlights + the central light. If you think this is going to be a especially non-cost effective option, then I’m happy for the left switch to control the left light, the right switch controls the right lights and the central light
I will supply replacement light switches, You supply/install the cabling and rewire the switches

Obviously need to be a licensed electrician

Is it only for the days you've mentioned ?
James R.poster
I am open to other options, but I would imagine a 9 day window is pretty generous haha

Would need to be a weekend
It's great. In fact a luxury that seems to good t be true haha. All good was just confirming dates
Cool thanks. So just to clarify with your switching arrangements you want all the downlights lights controlled from both switching positions?
James R.poster
Yes. Left switch to control all 4 lights, right switch to control a) all 4 lights, and b) the centre light (which currently runs off a broken remote control)
And are you in a single
Or double story house?
James R.poster
Single storey, detached house

Roof access is through a manhole in the garage. I can supply the ladder if you need it

No issues with shutting off the power
