Drop ceiling layout and lighting help...


Getting towards the end of my laundry room project. I am installing 2x2 drop ceiling. I'm dropping only 3" from the joists as I don't have much clearance with the doors. I will install at least 2 lights. I need help with the layout and how to install the lights.

Here is a picture:

The thick blue lines are joists. red are pipes, black on angles are doors. The red circles are where I think I can install recessed lights. My measurements are:

Left side: 80" x 59.5"
Right side: 48" x 26"




Thanks!!!

Kevin

I thought about that but it's very tight and the pipe is the main gas line.
