I'm anal about symmetry. I would have installed a 6th can even if I didn't get paid for it. That would drive me nuts knowing it wasn't symmetrical.

I do agree a sixth can would look better but, install a sixth can and lose money.

I wouldn't really do it for free, but I would seriously sell the homeowner a 6th can one way or another.

I agree. They can have something for free as soon as they pull out their wallet and pay up.

Those cans look good, how long did they take working off that extension ladder?

I was joking about giving away the can light. I'm so cheap I wouldn't even give a cover plate away.

Not really. The 6th can would be located over a window. A big NO-NO for such accent lighting ...
