It is easier to install recessed lighting during a remodel project when you use the remodel fixtures that have been created for just that purpose.
As you can see from the picture, it is possible to:
- cut your holes in the ceiling (but cut them carefully)
- snake the wiring from hole to hole
- make your junctions in the attached junction box
- then insert the can up through the hole and position it in place
This allows you to install recessed lighting while doing most (maybe even all) the work from under the ceiling, without having to spend time in the attic.
Remodel recessed lighting fixtures are perhaps the best invention since sliced bread!!!
And speaking of recessed lighting for your home ….. we would love to install some for you when you live in or near San Jose.
