The T-8's will be a huge improvement over the old T-12 fixtures. A few years ago we remodeled a Fred's building we own with T-8's and the difference was night and day, have been using them ever since.
Overall impressive thread and I'm beginning to think I'm in the wrong line of work.. lol. Next time you and your wife come to Memphis let me know what kind of cuisine you are craving and maybe I can point you in a good direction that might not be "well known" but worth the trip. BTW where did you go eat at this weekend while here?
Yo, thanks for the compliments.
Thanks for the heads-up on the light fixtures. I dunno that my room is any brighter with the T8s, but it's definitely quieter with non of that cold HUM of the T12s...
I actually live in Chattanooga, TN, and it looks like you live just west of Knoxville. I never visited Crossville, but perhaps I will get to one day. It's a lot closer than Memphis for sure...
While I was in Memphis, I ate at the usual places like Gus's Fried Chicken and Rendezvous BBQ, but I also checked out a lot of ethnic places like their awesome Vietnamese restaurants. My wife and I lived there for 4 years, so it was memory lanes for us.
Good luck on your family business.
