The dimmable lights are great. If you can install lights with sensors, it will be good too. I've just had my place renovated so I don't have the opportunity to do that now. I hope you manage to find out what your neighbour did! Isn't borax toxic? I'm scared to have borax anywhere near my dogs. I also read that my husband's ezcema cream has borax content. Really confuses me. I'd need to google a bit on this.
