. Want to run a brown external wire to point where I can hang chandelier. I can’t cut thru beams. Any suggestions for where to find wiring, etc.
Assuming you have wires from where the green line starts, this should be simple enough, provided you're OK with some wires showing.
You'll want to buy
- A heavy-duty (fan rated) metal fixture box (octagon) and screws to mount it into the top beam. I would suggest you buy a box with clamps built in
- If you didn't buy the box with clamps, buy a NM clamp that fits the knockouts
- Finally, buy the proper size wire in armored cable, as well as clamps to secure the wire to the beam
If you're wanting to add a switch, buy a surface mount metal box, switch, and switch cover
