As promised here is the control box for lighting. The LED's are wired in parallel. If wired in series then one out all out. Each circuit has a different size resistor depending on the number of lights in that room. Notice that the resistors are place in-line to prevent you from burning your led's by plugging the wrong jack in circuit. If there's an oops the only thing that won't be correct is the room name.

What a wonderful house, it's looking great - would love to see how your wife decorates and furnishes it. Is it a surprise for her?

What a great build Skipper. Christine is a lucky lady.
Your lighting system looks complicated by very effective.

That is one beautiful house you are building there Skipper. Such an amazing amount of detail and intricacy. The lighting system is incredible.

Really looking forward to seeing more of your progress on this one.

'Christine is about 36" long and 24" deep. My shop is in the garage. It would be a little hard to hide this one.

Thanks for all the compliments. Didn't really think I'd get into making the furniture and cabinets but I am really starting to look forward to that.
