Yesterday, I visited Ten-Sho-An to install a ceiling fan that I bought at Amazon. Koji-san and Minoru-san joined us as a volunteer staff member.
We didn’t know the wiring of the one that was delivered to us, but we thought we’d be able to figure out how to install it. And then…
We found out that we don’t have the basic wiring parts to install it. If we were in the city, I could run to buy them, but there is not even a convenience store in front of the station in the countryside, so I can’t run to buy them…
We’ve had to cut and paint the squares, fix them to the beams with screws, rewire them, and that’s just a lot of work.
It was going to take only one hour to install it, but it ended up taking three hours with three people. But we managed to install it safely.
