I’m putting lights in my living room. Why did they not put lights in the largest room in my house?
Anyway, I cut 6 holes in my ceiling - nice and evenly spaced. I’ve got wire through each hole now. I cut the 7th hole and found a copper pipe (for radiant heat) in the way.
Push the pipe aside and brace it to the joist. The recessed light can will fit, but just barely. I think the can will be about 1/2 inch away from the pipe, but they won’t be touching. I think I’m not supposed to allow copper to butt up against other metals…something about corrosion. Water pipes move around a bit when water flows through them, though.
Cut a new hole in bewteen two other joists. That means I won’t have evenly spaced lights in my ceiling.
What should I do, Ute fans?
