I've got a small shed out back.
There's a blue plastic box with a double outlet
nailed to the truss.
I'd like to switch to a chain-pull screw-in lightbulb.
It occurs to me, I've never seen a lightbulb
adaptor in a square box.
Must I switch to an octagon/metal box ?
Is this the only power in the shed? If so, maybe you could run length
of romex from the existing box to a new box for the light. That way
you'd have an outlet *and* a light.
Of course, that's after you pull a permit, hire an architect to plan
the location for the new box, a lighting consultant to ensure the
proper fixture/bulb for both task and ambiance considerations and a
licensed master electrician to install the box and bring the rest of
the electric to the shed up to code. Oh yeah, have a framing crew on
retainer in case the building inspector decides the existing truss
can't handle the additional load of the fixture.
