Not over the windows.
Where you have them looks very good. I do a lot of these. My customers love them with a very soft glow. They're not for lighting a walkway. Just to enhance the house at night.
3-5 hours we'd have them installed and looking good.
3-5 hours and you’d have all the lights in that picture installed?

With a job like this, it could easily take me up to 1-2 hrs just to get all my lights laid out the way I want. I dont like mistakes. Especially when your drilling 4-6” holes. Pretty sure there’s lights around the side and the back too.

Yes, and a wall switch. I'm just stating the ones in the pic. He's already got them laid out. Just center them. Use the L wire method to make sure you don't hit a Joice. I've got a helper of course. He's young, skinny and fast in attics.
Dang. That’s pretty fast.

I dont worries about hitting joists anymore, now that wafer lights are so popular. But there’s no way I could have everything drilled out, wires fished, switch installed and lights wired up in that amount of time. Even with a good helper I’d be at least 8-10hrs easy. It would be dark by the time we left.
