Home Installation of an Additional Wall Dimmer and New Ceiling Light Fixture CSChainHangingFromCeilingSHARP-480x640-IMG_8762Copyrighted


This is the view inside of the ceiling with the new wire pulled in through the hole in the laminated beam.

I usually leave extra slack on the wires for chandeliers in case the homeowner decides to lower it or use it on a high ceiling in the future. Having the deep octagon electrical box in the ceiling lets me tuck some extra chandelier wire slack up there.
White electrical tape was put on the chandelier neutral conductor to make it easily identifiable. Normally shallow ridges on the one side indicate the neutral.

The wires are tucked up inside of the deep octagon electrical box. This is another good reason to use a deep box, there's more room for the excess wires.
The light fixture hook and bracket are attached to the deep octagon electrical box in the ceiling.
