Need lighting for the H1 help

This is a test video we threw together to try out the H1 in the house that will eventually be getting redone, and hopefully filmed. We had minimal sunlight (predusk and mostly blocked windows to avoid blue hues) and only a 500 bulb,200bulb, and i think a 300 watt work light, diffused through some plastic sheeting. If you look carefully you can see a bit of grain in there (though QT seems to have blurred the image a bit). I`m not sure the amount of lumens the lights put out, but we are trying to figure out how many lights do you think we will need to eliminate the grain? I don`t think professional lighting kits are in the budget, but about %60+ of the renovations will be indoors with dark hardwood all over.

Also, this was with the included 20 x lense. That room is huge, and i had to back all the way into the corner to be able to see that much. Are there other lenses that can see more without being so far away? I have heard wide angle lenses help, but distort the image quite a bit
