Good conversation Bud / Ryan.
I actually didn't particularly want the cans in the ceiling, but put them in after we nixed the sconces. I got some real cheap on craigslist, which I now need to sell off (not the ones pictured earlier in the thread for the play room - alas, nothing cheap there) because we started to get worried about the heat they would throw off since they are halogens. I also traded messages with Greg Powers, who commented that solely perimeter lights tend can be an issue with clean up.
I would prefer the lights Ruben used (nicer finish, more aimable) to the hockey puck ones, but couldn't source them locally, and took the path of least resistance with the electrician. I can always change them over at a later date. One mistake I may be making is I really haven't provided for lights to wash the screen. I guess I kept thinking I'd rather have the PJ on, and who needs light up there. If I regret it, I guess I'll work that in on the soffit above the screen.
Bud - there is another guy who wants in on the rope light. Its back ordered till early may. But 150 feet is probably perfect for 3 rooms, come to think of it.
Plasterers finished up today. Looks good. I have almost no lights down there (they seem to have hidden the one I was using) so no pics tonight. Electrician is in for part of the finish work tomorrow, so I'll go for the two-fer.
