I'm looking to add a ceiling fan to an existing junction box. The current junction box runs parallel to a joist (which it's screwed into on one end) and is circular on the other end. Which of the two options would be better: - Add a 2x6 for bracing on the top of the junction box between the joists where attached (would nailing or screwing it be better?) - Remove the current box, and put in a fan rated metal box. This would require me to cut and patch drywall, since the current box has an odd shape.
Any insights on what's the best / easiest option are appreciated!
