Retrofitting recessed cans in a Family Room
Our family room is in need of additional lighting. I'd like to have 4 cans installed. Here are the problems as I see them-
The home is complete. There is no access to the ceiling from above-it's a first floor room.
The room has an 11 foot ceiling and heavy trim with coffers-
There is a double switch on a wall in the room which controls the gas logs and also has a switch for a future fireplace blower. We don't intend to ever install a blower, and I'd be willing to give up that switch to control the cans.
My main concern is how much of the ceiling and walls would need to get torn up to get the wiring run. I'd really rather not have to cut holes everywhere. We added cans to our old kitchen, but we used the wiring from the old flourescent rectangle fixture so there was already a source in that ceiling.
How hard is this job going to be?
