    Garage Insulation Question

    The "general" requirement, for attic ventilation Is 1-150, IE, 1sq ft of vent for ea. 150sq ft of attic area, and this is not a geometric calc., so, in a 400sq ft. of garage, the simple calc. is 400divided by 150=3 & 2/3rds, so, install 4sq ft of venting.

    Ceiling light install

    Strip each conductor at least 1" and twist together. Or you could use 2 reds; So you have the neutral from the hot pair, 3 of the fixture and a 6" jumper, under a red wire nut. The other end of the jumper & 4 of the fixture, under a red wire nut. The same for the hot.
