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.

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 http://www.sailorsams.com/lights_cei...tic_incnav.htm

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.
