You can use the ULN2803 Darlington Array Line Driver chip for this project.· The Darlington Array will allow you to turn on/off relays without damaging your BASIC Stamp.· You can·find more information in the Nuts & Volts article #6 called Silicon Steroids for Stamps.

The X10 system used to be nice for this. You could use the "Firecracker" module to connect to the BS2 to give yourself an RF-link to the X10 system, then use off-the-shelf X10 hardware for lights, heating control, etc.
