comment Basement drain without a trap
how can you tell if you have a "floor drain to soakaway"? could you expand on why you might have a soakaway instead of it draining to septic/sewer?

comment Is this a drain cover or an electrical outlet cover?
Im no plumber but in addition to the other clues to it being an outlet, a drain should be flush with the ground, not above it by half an inch.

comment Is it possible to convert a switched light into an unswitched outlet?
Great answer. I would add my vote to leaving the switch. The security of garage door openers can be weak goo.gl/2pcRPq and having the switch there enables you to make your home a little more secure when you go on vacation or will be out of the house for a while.

Could you both take a look at my edit and give me your thoughts on using a single transformer?

right, but if its 120v cant i just cut the wire before the plug, and splice it together directly with the yellow wire coming out of the wall?

I want to go with LED given how much halogen bulbs waste electricity. What about something like this? amazon.com/LEDP120WH-120V-Direct-Puck-Light-White/dp/B00DQGIMNW/…

Thats unfortunate. I want to use the hardwires, and want to avoid having to 'plug-in' any plugs. +1 anyways

comment What do I need in order to install under cabinet lights?
When I search for 120V to 12V transformer, I get a bunch of different transformers, for different amps and watts. How do I know the kind of transformers I need? Is it the same for each cabinet/set-of-cabinets? What do you mean when you say I need a 'duplex outlet' for each connection? The 120V wires are already connected (on a single dedicated circuit I believe). Do I need to change the circuit (whats behind the walls)? What are jumper wires for? Do I need to use barrel connectors, on the transformer end, or can I splice wires and connect the LED to the transformer with a wire nut?

I think you are getting down votes because your answer is essentially 'go read a book'
