One of the first things that stuck out to me when we first looked at our home were the push button style light switches in the attic addition.  I had never seen this kind of switch before, and quite frankly it freaked me out.  With our ancient wiring and outdated switches, I was sure our home was going to burn to the ground.

I hadn’t given them a second thought until we started discussing our wiring project again.  A good majority of the attic addition needs to be updated from knob and tube wiring.  During that time, we were planning to update many of the outdated fixtures and add outlets throughout the home.  When looking for fixtures I came across a modern twist on the classical push button switch.  It would be nice to keep the integrity and charm of our home, while not having to worry that we are going to burn down in the middle of the night!
