First off I have done small electrical projects like add outlets, but never anything major. I have a loft with a ceiling fan/light that is just not bright enough to light up the entire room. The light is controlled by one switch, the fan by another. The house is 10 years old running 14/2 to the switches.
I would like to add a few LED recessed lights into the room to brighten it up a bit, and would like them to be on their own dimmer switch.
Can I wire the Fan/Light into one switch from one hot wire, then use the extra hot wire connected to the other switch to then power the series of LED can lights (then pig tail the neutral and ground)? Attached is a diagram of my proposed wiring. Obviously I want to stay within code to be safe. Thanks guys/gals!
