awesome

I have enjoyed following this thread, especially now that I am in the middle of my build. I was in the same boat as you for lights. I determined that I could get by with 4 x 6" cans. It is not super bright but it saved me a ton of work since the ceiling joists run right to left. So I figure that 95% of the time the lights will be out anyway. I figure it might be a choice that I regret later, but if someone needs to find something, that is why they invented flashlights. I am excited to continue this thread and watch all your progress.

my build is here : Darroch Theater

I think I have decided on sconces. Found some reasonably priced that I like the look of so I ordered one and installed it when it arrived yesterday. I am liking it. It will also match the trims of the other lights which are a "Tuscan Bronze". Now I have to order 10 more

Yeah that is a ton of overhead cans. I was in same dilemma and then realized I hate overheard lights. I prefer dim to no lights. So I only put 6 LED smart bulbs on each side of mine. It won't light up like yours but it is sufficient for now and I prefer torches lights, etc.

Your build is moving alone nicely. I am thinking of doing your under stairs media cabinet as well.
