In this series, Sebastian Mariscal designs a home in Venice, California, that brings the outside in. We track the project from start to finish with future resident Michael Sylvester.Part 21, May 2013: Finished Electrical.
As we move into the home stretch of interior finishes, the various built-in electrical products are installed including Miele appliances which were specified throughout the home. In this image the team from Miele Concierge Installation Services arrives in Venice.
A Miele Steam Oven is installed in the kitchen. The cabinet doors are in place to ensure the appliances and doors are all exactly aligned per the drawings.

Installation of the ceiling light in the living room is also part of our finished electrical process. Here we see the mounting system and frame of the Ukiyo G Ceiling/Wall Combo by AXO Light. The next step involves stretching a fabric cover over the frame.
