Installing a new light inder a beam


We are installing new recessed (can) lighting in our kitchen. As it turns out, there is a beam right where we want to put a spot light over the sink. Err! Is it possible to offset the junction box (under the ceiling) and still put a low profile light where we want it?

My guess is you mean joist, not a beam.
Look up remodel can light.
Still going to have to offset to one side or the other of the joist.

Is the joist pretty much exactly centered over the sink? --- How about two lights over the sink, one on each side?

Yes joecaptain, I mean joist. (Hubby wasn't standing over my shoulder to correct me) I will look that up.

SPS-1, yep, exactly centered. Two lights is what we figured we would have to do. But never hurts to ask advice of others who might have run into the same thing.

Thank you.

Why not just offset the can light and use a light with a swivel-head to aim it at the sink?

Patented, thanks for the reply. We ended up doing two smaller cans on either side of the joist, and installed a dimmer.
