I removed a 10-15 lb light from my ceiling.
Beneath, the electrical box was at an odd angle:
So I pulled that off as well, which revealed this hole.
Those nail holes which were holding in the box and, therefore the light, look like they're pretty close to the edge of the beam. That makes me wonder:
- Were they unsafe?
- Is there a code specifying how far into a beam screws should go?
