I started with this:
and quickly moved on to this:
At that point everything stopped. There was no electrical box in the ceiling, just wires sticking out and the electrician hadn't brought a box with him! He then took the track lighting out of the box to look at it and said he didn't think halogen was a good choice because it gets too hot! He suggested that I get LED track, but said there wasn't a lot of choices in that yet. He also said that halogen pot lights would be too hot here! His second suggestion was a light fixture with incandescent blubs!
(a lot of !!s, but that is how this conversation made me feel!)
So now I have wires hanging from my ceiling. I took the lights back last night and couldn't find an alternate. This weekend is a hunting trip for lighting.
On the upside, I did have him change the light in the powder room from this:
SO ... QUESTION?Do you have halogen? Is it too hot with 8 foot ceilings?
I went to a good lighting store last night and the owner suggested that I go with the halogen lights I had purchased and as the LED bulbs improve, that I retrofit them. He said they were too weak and expensive at the moment, but improve every couple months .... so I think that is what I will do. Now I just have to call the electrician back!
