I see what you guys are saying but if you see how low the roof comes down, Im afraid it would be in the way or be a head-banger. Maybe I need to get my lights and work off of that dimension. Here is how its sits right now:

Ah yes - the head banger! I forget, but I had to work around that too and ended up making my roof higher/flatter because I wanted to have head clearance at the corners.

You can probably come out as far as your counter top without any issues.

These will fit in the soffet:



Lithonia Lighting 3 in. Recessed Oil Rubbed Bronze Gimbals LED Lighting Kit-LK3GORB LED LPI M6 at The Home Depot
Anyone gone deep into LED lighting at home or office? I have converted about 1/3 of mine. I hate changing/shopping for and storing all the different bulbs that I have at both home and office so we are hoping this technology is good for a few years of duty

I have a bunch of PAR30 can lights in my home that I am looking to convert to LED. They briefly had bulbs for $10 after rebate at costco, but I thought about it and missed the deal!

Do you have enough depth for those cans? I had to buy specialty units. Also - looks like that is an "old work"/remodel style can-light. You'll save money with "new work" model and they will be more secure than those.

Doesn't look like it'll interfere with the cooking area!

Im sure it will need a bracket for new construction. I'll make one or whatever. I didnt measure depth but I took it out of the package and it was small. Should have about 6"

Made some progress today. Got the Hardi Backer complete as well as the Electrical. I'll be using a Brick Veneer over the Hardi and Block. Havent decided on roof yet. Looking at Copper and Tile but not sure I have enough support for Tile. Im looking for an old-world Italian look. Open to suggestions. Our Home is White Limestone with Metal roof but didnt want to try to match that. Would rather have a contrast to the existing look.

Tile or stone will be #1 if you are looking for a traditional look. The tiles are much,much easier than stone....I suggest going that route. Once your sheathing is on your framing will be enough to support the weight.
