Anyone have a good source for 12volt dc, to standard 110 household current hardwire transformers for toilet fan and dickinson propane fan?

Well we’ve been busy busy busy this week.  Getting electrical started.  We’ve got 3 main circuits run, and now working on the last line, which is a bit more complicated due to two pesky 3 way switches, but the goal is to finish all of that wiring this weekend!  And finally the LED gods smiled upon me and I found an awesome LED recessed can that will indeed fit 2 x 4 construction!  Yea, I said it!  And here is the kicker, it didn’t cost $200 bucks, just $29 at Lowes.  It is also damp rated, so look no further for a nice looking recessed LED.  I will do my worship at the LED altar later today.

Also picked up the remaining fire and monoxide detectors and my pendant light.  I’ll be sure to list all the model numbers etc later today, so if you’ve been hunting like I’ve been hunting, it might help ya out.

Ok, off to by 14:2 wire, for the last bit of line, and try and hunt down a 12dc volt to 110 household transformer that is hardwired so I can convert the fan in both my Airhead toilet and the Dickinson Newport 1200 stove fan to standard household.  This has been tough to find, so if anyone has any suggestions that don’t involve wall warts, I’m all ears!  Someone did mention door bell transformers, but they are 16v, I need one to run 14:2 directly to transformer then out to 12v dc, that is small enough to fit in an outlet box.  I would love some advice if you’ve found a good one out there….

Well today is the day, I start the electrical wiring!  I’ve read and watched all the wiring videos etc, that one woman can possibly watch, and it’s now or never!   And so it begins…..  I’ll post pics afterward!

Floors all done!  Another big step towards completion….  Took 4 days and gazillions if sanding paper, but the time and effort were well worth it!    More pics to follow.
