That make me think of another question, if you don't mind. There is a GFCI in the garage, but

The diagram helps. Thanks! So in the end I would have what my last thought was--one dimmer in

Speedy:Thanks for your concern. I already know I would need a pull chain unless I really wanted
to delve into electrical work, which I don't. I don't dig in that closet often, but hate that I

I don't have a volt meter, so I really don't know what the power level is going to my smoke
