So I got up the nerve to poke holes in my kitchen ceiling drywall this weekend, prior to our huge Thanksgiving dinner on Sunday. It was noticed by everybody but my spouse really appreciated the difference.
Anyways, I was surprised to learn just how many lights were on that circuit so I only put two pot lights instead of three. Kind of glad that I did cause they were more than enough to make a huge improvement in the area. Anyways, as it turns out, the overhead fan+light (over the kitchen stove), one outside light in the back yard, 4 sofit lights in the front yard, one light in the front entrance, plus the already existing kitchen light and dining room lights are all on that circuit.
The hardest part was the balancing act on the rafters in the attic while trying to nail the boxes into position. The wiring was a piece of cake with no surprises.
