Like I said it's really hard to get into the space with the camera, but the light bulb sockets are directly attached to round "boxes".It looks like there is some type of fixture box with greenfield entering and exiting. The two bronze sockets are somehow connected to the fixture box.
If you take another picture, turn down your resolution and turn off the flash.
I was thinking the same thing. Id like to put some small high hats in that area.well, I don't see anything legal about the installation you have. It's about the most improper install I have seen in awhile.
So, what would you like to do? What kind of fixture do you want to install?
Yes, the opening will remain, depending on what lights I do. Believe it or not, that section of the ceiling is wood.Ok, what is the ceiling made of? I see what looks like a drywall ceiling but it it looks like it might not be screwed directly to the joists. Is the opening I see in the pics going to remain?
