Need to offset pendants from junction box

Posted by mamasheshe (My Page) on

I am in the middle of a kitchen remodel. We have expanded the kitchen area into the adjacent breakfast room with a steeply sloped 2-story ceiling. My electrician says the junction box cannot be moved. Is there some sort of "T" for a monorail system that can be used on a sloped ceiling in order to offset the pendants out from the existing box and in both directions?

"My electrician says the junction box cannot be moved. "

It can be moved, the question is how much damage you would need to do to the ceiling and how much money it is going to cost.

You may have to put in new cable runs to the box from other boxes.
