I have a single-floor ranch style house and would like to install a couple of security lights on the front and back of the house. Most of the instructions I read for installing security lights begin with the words "Remove the existing fixture" which I do not have. Anyway, I went up to the roof and unless I shrink down to my size at roughly age 6, there is no way I am going to get any wiring box between the roof and the eave top from the roof side.
Right now I'm thinking my best option is to cut out a roughly 1'x2' section of the eave from the *BOTTOM*, nail a ceiling fixture box to one of the exposed studs (with the appropriate amount of wire attached), cut the appropriate hole and reattach the eave to the studs.
Question: Is there a patently obvious and easier way to do this that I am missing? Has anyone tried this before and found an easier way? Thanks and Regards,
