Exterior ceiling j-box
 
Is there such a thing as an exterior ceiling junction box?
I'm adding electricity for lighting in my front entryway which will be a hanging fixture.
TIA

I kind of suspected that, makes sense. I thought that since it was protected by the roof of the porch, I could use a standard box.
Thanks, back to the box store.

Is a ceiling being installed? IF so just use a standard box.

Yeah, you need to give all the info for the right advice.

Even if a ceiling isn't being installed, I would just make a siding block for the ceiling and use a regular box, you'll want something for the fixture canopy to sit flush against anyhow.

Thanks,
Yes a ceiling will be installed. This is one of those things that I don't know what the relevant information to give is.
