Prepping for installation
Contact a lighting designer or expert who can give you an electrical plan for your lighting. Porch lighting should not only look good. They should also adhere to your home electrical installation. Select suitable recessed luminaires according to your room needs. Are you lighting a narrow hall, a work of art or a family living room? Keep this in mind when shopping for fixtures.
Locate the locations where the porch lighting will go into the ceiling using a tape measure and measurements from the lighting plan. Select each spot on the ceiling using a ladder and marker. Stick a wire hanger through this mark and on the ceiling. This will help you determine where the rules are in your roof. If you have wind access, you can see where the rules are relative to the top of the wire hanger. The rules do not allow for recessed light boxes so you will want to avoid this by seeing that there is enough space between each.
