Now, a new Lumber Company in Los Angeles, California, has taken a new stab at solving the issue of home insulation with a $10 million project that will install a new light bulb in every home.
The company, Lumber Co. Light Bulb, is working with Lumber King on a two-year, $1.8 billion renovation of an old Lumber Works building at 728 North La Brea Ave.
The project is designed to upgrade existing structures and create new light fixtures to help prevent fires.
The Lumber king’s $1 billion renovation will include two floors of windows and new roofing, which will be installed on a new floor.
The new bulbs are part of a $50 million renovation project of the building that includes a $5 million new roof and $3 million new windows.
The Lumber kings $2.6 billion remodel of the current building is currently under way.
A new lightbulb installation in a home is not a new idea.
In 2007, L.A. became the first city in the U.S. to require a permit to install an LED light bulb at a residence.
But the city’s new ordinance requires a permit only for new construction and is designed as a safety measure.
The city’s previous ban on new light bulbs was part of an effort to protect people living at home from potential fires, but many have complained that it didn’t go far enough.
