4-way switch and light fixture
 
I have a wiring diagram that shows a four-way switch & light fixture, with the fixture at the end of the cable run. More specifically, the power is supplied through a 3-way switch, through a 4-way switch, through a 3-way switch, and then to a single light. My question is: can I add additional lights using this layout.
Thanks in advance for your help.
Mike

Certainly you can add lights so long as the total load on the branch circuit does not exceed the circuit beaker rating. You might explain in more detail where you want to add those lights but as long as you are going to connect them back to the existing light fixture box I see no problem.

What I want to do all on one circuit is the following: power supply to first switch (three way), to second switch (four way), to third switch (three way), to a series of 3 lights. (S3-S4-S3-light-light-light). The lights will be overhead lights using a maximum of 100 watt bulbs.

I hope this is clear. Thanks

Perfectly clear and perfectly fine.
