Rough Plan Design


I will just suggest to leave the numbers of cans alone and use the multi location dimmer I know they are not that cheap but it will justify the cost so you can use the dimmer at any location where you have three and four ways switches are { if you going with multi location dimmer please pay attetion to the way you bring the cable or conductor to the switch boxes and please try to leave a netural at each switch boxes (It will be required in 2011 NEC code requirment anyway )}

For the bulbs I know you say 75 watts PAR 38 but really I suggest use the 65 watts BR30 bulbs or get one with halogén verison and watch the system wattage total for each dimmers.

For unfinshed room I know you say recessed can but if that going to be a storage room then to play the game in wise way is use the shower trim due that can be a cloth closet and the NEC code do not allow any open indentscent bulbs in cloth closet or storage room if the ceiling hight is semilow { this will be much safer this way anyway}

Just be aware you will need AFCI if your state code do require it and I know you say something about wet bar which I did see the drawing you will need a GFCI receptale for it. Excat details I have to look up to make sure (they are pretty simauir to kitchen useage but not the excat the same )

Merci.
Marc

GFCI protection required for wet-bar receptacles within 6 feet of a sink.
