Default Installing recessed lights from ceiling fan

Hello guys and thanks for stopping by.

My wife wants 4 recessed lights in the master Bedroom and all we have is a ceiling fan, I'm wonder if I can achieve the task my wife put in my hands with a little bit of your help.

Thanks again

This is the light switch we have in the master Bedroom

This site is for electricians.

You want a DIY site.

Google for them.

On the whole, you're better off just dialling a licensed electrical contractor.

You'll thank me later.

Look it up on YouTube. This site is not for home do it yourself wiring. Plenty of other forums that will help you though. Sorry.

BTW, the First Time out the Door... you're CERTAIN to burn up your budget just buying the right tools.

This is ALWAYS neglected in YouTube videos.

It's NOTHING for an electrician to show up with $3,000 worth of tools and materials...

Indeed, that'd be a LOW figure for a service truck.

What the Real World offers: COMPLICATIONS.

They are too endless to even list here.

1) Beam in the way

2) Flakey original work

3) Can't find support for new work

On and on it goes.

For a dinky job... HIRE OUT.

Then you can blame him... and your wife will be happy.
