Shower Light

We want to unstall a shower light in our bathroom. I bought a 6" insulation contact can but when I got home I realized there's a rafter that runs on the center of the shower. Do I have any other options?

Not really. Those situations suck.
Off center the light or a surface mount light.


Sometimes I feel like if I answer any more questions it is like someone trying to climb over a fence to jump off a bridge and me giving them a boost.

check out the stuff on this site, its low voltage and its waterproof. Some of them have a spot light style, so you could put one front and back or left and right and adj the light to shine where you want it

Head it off if your die hard to have it center, or just go with two 4" cans off center. 6" cans are a joke IMO anyways, they look like a meteor coming through the ceiling.
