Gazebo Light Installation

tim_pool_newbieJune 28, 2010

I just recently purchased a gazebo with pre-wiring for a light. I bought a simple octagonal light fixture that should nicely fit over the octagonal opening in the gazebo ceiling where the wire comes in. However, there is a cross-member bar straight across the celing opening and so I'm not quite sure how to install any type of junction box onto which I can then install my light fixture. If I tack the box to the bottom of this cross-member, the light fixture would not be flush against the celing.

Anyone have any thoughts on the proper installation of a gazebo light? (Even if I were installing a ceiling fan I'd have the same issue)
