    Anyone got any idea on a fixture for recessed mounting if soffits ? Should be black in color per homeowners request and highest of quality.

    Hopefully someone has some experience with this.

    Now that's architectural lighting. It's an upside well light. A lot less glare. Talk about separating yourself from the competition.

    I suppose you don't need to use the line voltage/transformer.

    Nightscaping makes a fixture, not coincidentally, called the "soffitliter", which is available in all of their colors. Part number RD-0404.

    LO93 is standard, but Nightscaping will customize sockets/lamps to suit your design requirements.

    Real world application, This was a retrofit job and the steps and columns couldn't be illuminated very easily. You can see the three cans and trims just in front of the cedar beam.

    Eden,
    Very nice. Is the supply wire fed from the ground and somehow hidden? Could you give some detail on how you accomplished hiding the supply wire?
    I'd like to do more of this type of lighting, but it always seems to be almost impossible to hide the wire, and get it to where it needs to go.
