Use laser level to find level line around room.
Figure out how you are going to change ceiling lights as part of any plan.

1) Put furring strips across room 16" on center.
Use shims or spacers under furring strip at each nailing point to keep level.
Re-install ceiling electrical boxes to match new ceiling height.
Install new sheetrock.

2) Install suspended ceiling grid.
The cross grid is held with wires attached to old ceiling.
Plan for electric lighting by installing can light fixtures or drop in 2'x2' or 2'x4' fluorescent lights.

3) Float smooth, and prime ceiling.
Have artist paint cloud scene on ceiling to disguise unevenness.

How do i install set of six downlighters no transformer required


  1. Decide where you wish to place your chosen downlights measuring out the ceiling and marking the central point of the light. Now drill a small pilot hole through the ceiling.
  2. Now you have marked out the positions of the downlights it is a good idea to check above the ceiling to ensure that there are no joists / wires / pipes in the way. You should be able to see a small pinprick of light coming through the ceiling where you drilled the pilot holes. If you are unable to view the ceiling from above it gets trickier. The best way is to determine which way the joists run and what the spacing of them are. You could then use an old wire coat hanger bent at a 900 angle to the width of the downlight. Insert the wire through the hole until the 900 bend is through. Now twist the wire a full 3600 and hopefully it will not bump into any obstructions.
  3. In the instructions or on the box of the downlights it will say what the cut-out for that downlight will be. For the best results I will generally use a hole saw (a type of drill bit) to the correct size of the downlight which can be purchased very cheaply from most DIY stores. Alternatively the use of a plasterboard saw (Pad Saw) can be used which eliminates the need for a drill and hole saw. For this method you will need to draw a circle on the ceiling to the correct size as a guide for when you start to saw.
  4. Hopefully now you have produced a clean cut hole in the ceiling, got the plaster out of your eyes and shaken yourself outside to stop you looking like Casper the ghost!
  5. Once the wiring has been pulled through the hole the downlight can be wired. To fit the downlight into the hole hold the two springs back against the sides of the downlighter and push up into the hole. The springs then lie flat on the top of the ceiling holding it in place

I understand that the black and blue wire can be connected to the black wire in my ceiling. ok fair enough. However, in my new bedroom, there is 2 switches on the wall that apparently control two black...


A ceiling fan requires a neutral wire (white), a ground wire (green), a hot wire for the fan (black), and on fans with light kits a hot wire for the lights (blue). These examples will assume that a lighting kit is going to be used, but if it is not terminations to the blue wire are not required and the circuit is greatly simplified The ceiling fan and light can also be wired through switches. When a single switch is used to connect to the ceiling fan and light the ceiling fan (black) and light (blue) would both be connected to the switched black wire. In this configuration turning the switch on would power both the light and ceiling fan. In order to turn just one off, the pull strings would have to be used. The problem with this approach, is that when the pull strings have been used to turn the light or ceiling fan off, turning the switch back on will not work until the pull string is pulled again .
The ceiling fan and light can also be wired through two switches. This would generally be two separate switches, one for the fan and one for the light. This would generally be a 3 conductor w/ground coming from the switch box. The ceiling fan (black) wire would connect to the switched black wire from the ceiling fan switch, the light wire (blue) would connect to the switched red wire from the light switch and the neutral (white) and ground (bare) would connect to the their associated wires..

Wiring is not fully described: Location of hot wire and neutral wire from breaker box are unknown.
If Hot wire arrives in ceiling box first, the switch box will not have white neutral wires that are twisted together and covered with wire nut. Neutrals will be in ceiling box.

What is known: You are replacing single pole switch attached to one 14-2 wire going to light.
You are replacing light with a fan-light and replacing switch with a 3-pole TM8111 switch.
You have replaced 14-2 wire with 12-3 wire.

TM8111 wiring shows following link:
http://waterheatertimer.org/images/TM8111-switch-wiring-500.jpg
Fan pull-chain wiring shows following link:
http://waterheatertimer.org/images/Fan-motor-1-344.jpg
Assume neutrals in ceiling box.
Assume Hot wire in ceiling box: Connect 12-3 black wire to black Hot wire. Connect 12-3 white wire to black wire on light. Connect 12-3 red to red wire on fan.
White neutral from fan and white neutral form light connect to other white neutral wires and covered with wire nut.
Wiring at switch:
Black Hot wire from ceiling box connects to A COM terminal.
White wire to ceiling light connects to A SP2
Red wire to fan connects to A SP1

I want to install switches in a bathroom. I want switches for the fan, ceiling light and mirror light in series


If you want to have the switches wired in series, you will have to run wires to and from the switches to every device and have to have multiple things on to turn on the devices. It is not practical to wire in series. Say the ceiling light is the first switch in the series and the vanity is the third. You have to turn on the ceiling light and the fan just to turn on the vanity. It does not make sense. It is far more practical to wire the switches in parallel with each switch and device having their own switch leg. You can turn anything on and off independent of the others AND save a substantial amount of wire opposed to series, wich would require your wiring to go to and from the switches three times (SIX runs!).

Light will not shut off on fixture (replacement of ceiling fan)


One of the two cables in the ceiling box is power and the opther is a switch leg .. what you need to do is connect the two black wires together at the ceiling, connect the white power wire to the white fixture wire ,.,. connect the white switch wire to the black fixture wire .. put some black tape on that white to make it legal .

Fix new pull switch to turn on light on ceiling fan


either one all it does is complete the circuit. only one wire is broken to open the circuit when you cut it on and off you just open and close the circuit with one wire.
