Default Re: Outdoor lighting

just completed lighting in my unit. I used recessed rope lights. Its easy to insert wood 1 X 1.5 to leave indent in concrete pour. I run conduit to elec box. I cut off the plug on rope light and hardwire to switch inside waterproof box. You do not need a receptiacal box at the lighting end just a conduit. I use a switch / single recepticle combo box in case I need to plug something in. You may have to grind off the tip of the switch to let the box cover close. I used a piece of garden hose as conduit to get my tricky curves done. This fits right inside regular 3/4 inch pvc conduit. To install the lights I drill a tapcon into the recess slot with a 6" piece of #12 copper wire to use like a twist tie - very simple. Lights are not bright enough for task lighting but help and look great even when I'm not cooking. They are cheap and last 10,000 hours. Well worth the effort in my opinion.
