Can you tell from the attached rudimentary picture if there is a way this will work physically for what I want?
To me, it seems like it's missing a cable run to get either power or switch to the pendant lights.
Before having the changes/adds done, it was a single gang switch that controlled the receptacle.
The fan worked via pull chain.
And the 4 pendant light boxes didn't exist.
I had them change to a 3 gang box to add a switch for fan (no light) and another switch for the 4 pendant light combined.
All of the runs labeled 14/2 are single cables.
The actual switches, fan and pendant lights are not connected yet - just the boxes and wiring for them in place.
With all breakers turned on, the fan box has one hot wire only.
The 4 pendant lights have no hot wires.
In that 3 gang box, the black and it looks like a common from Circuit B power are for one switch.
And the white and a common from Circuit B are for another switch.
Does the magic happen in that fan wiring box? Once the fan is connected, could that then make the 14/2 going to the pendant lights both hot and controlled by the other switch?
