So I'm doing some remodeling in the kitchen and have spent all morning trying to figure out this out. How do you get an electrical box for a pendant light in a 2x4 header? I'm trying to frame in a bar area and the wife wants some pendant lights above the bar. Is this even possible in a 2x4 frame?
I could mount a ceiling light electrical box on the 2x4 and then do another frame around that, but the ceiling light box is 3.5" diameter, so I'd have nothing to screw the drywall into around the box (say nothing of the corner bead).
Would it be possible to use a single gang outlet box for a ceiling light? Are the mount holes the same?
Any other ideas?
