Quote from: astidham on January 09, 2014, 08:30:53 PMHey John,When I bought my trusses a few weeks ago, I had them built with a 24 inch overhang.I asked the engineer about shortening the overhang, he said I could cut the overhang (only) flush up to, but not touching the bottom chord.If I am answering your question right ?
Quote from: astidham on January 09, 2014, 09:41:38 PMJohn, how I understood my truss engineer, I could cut the rafter overhang back to the truss plate, leaving no overhang at all.If I can remember, I will call him tomorrow to verify.
Quote from: MountainDon on January 28, 2014, 08:12:52 PMMy personal preference is for a general illumination ceiling light plus, under the cabinet lights to better illuminate work areas. We have only counters around the walls under the cabinets. A ceiling light with wall switch in a kitchen is a code requirement I believe.
Quote from: Windpower on January 29, 2014, 08:37:52 AMMaybe install 'under cabinet' LED lights on the sloped wall above the base cabinetsIf you are interested I can find out what my electricians are installing (tomorrow I think) as under counter lights --- they are inexpensive IIRC
Quote from: Don_P on January 29, 2014, 03:21:05 PMI think the lowest profile that might provide some downlight in a place like that might be something like an eyeball puck light of some sort. That would be a surface mount low profile led type light. By the time you get above head level a light would be behind you for most light types and I fear a track fixture where it would be in front of you would be too high profile and would get banged alot. We have done a garage apt with a kitchen like you're doing and it just has a center mounted ceiling fixture. It has worked but I've noticed a lamp on the countertop before. A sconce on a sidewall might help too if there is a sidewall close enough.edit: a quick google, something along these lines?http://www.allmodernoutlet.com/nora-lighting-mini-xenon-eyelid/?gclid=CKvUwaudpLwCFSUS7Aodql4Axg
