Sometimes when we get a call from contractors that are remodeling a home, we never quite know what to expect. When Greg at the Heiman Development Company contacted us recently on a project he was tackling for one of his clients, we couldn’t have been more surprised at the request. We were certainly intrigued when Greg mentioned the words—dinosaurs!
The client was planning a family reunion at his home and needed a renovation that would accommodate all the guests that would be staying on the property, and this included an interesting backyard revamp as well. It turns out the customer had three gargantuan hand painted fiberglass dinosaur statues around his pool that were virtually life sized! Greg asked us to come over and light these massive figures to truly make a mega impact in the evening, and we could not have been more excited about the assignment to say the least. It seemed like everyone on the team at Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Kansas City was making an excuse to work on this unique and fun project.
We started by focusing on the dino lighting first, and once John set up an evening demonstration for the client, he absolutely fell in love with what we could do. We illuminated the prehistoric creatures with a shadowy effect that made them feel as if they were coming out from behind the trees and hanging out poolside with the guests. The homeowner was so jazzed by the effect that he asked us to also tackle an upgrade of his entire existing lighting system as well. We were able to switch him to low consumption LED lighting, and did a heap of rewiring and relocating of many of the existing parts of his older and outdated system.
With the Jurassic World movie out, the homeowner thought it would be nifty to have the dinosaur’s eyes light up and roar at the grandkids, too! We can’t wait to see where that neat addition goes in the next few weeks. Since this customer’s home is the only one on the street that has outdoor lighting, it stands out with incredible curb appeal and adds to the architectural value of the home. We surely won’t be surprised if we get some calls from neighbors interested in a similar lighting treatment as often happens once we finish a project.
It doesn’t matter if you want to add a brand new lighting program to your home or business, if you need to update an existing system or have a truly unusual feature that you’d like to illuminate, Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Kansas can tackle most any outdoor lighting request—even if it’s unusual or seems difficult to accomplish. We are up for the challenge even if it’s of Jurassic proportions! We are more than happy to give you the most bang for your buck in terms of budget and maybe even save you some money on the back end with our gorgeous LED outdoor lighting designs that reduce your electric bills and are better for the environment.
Of course we can light the architecture of your home, your outdoor living spaces and your landscape, but sometimes lighting a special feature in your yard such as incredible specimen tree, a water feature or even a fabulous statue of the prehistoric nature can have incredible impression on your property like no other. It’s something that will surely make guests do a double-take!
