Ok...so the lights didn't work. Sometimes you just have to stare failure in the face and blame...somebody else!
So two things went wrong. The first one was that when I drew the plans for the lights, I drew them for the benchwork, below. I didn't draw them for the overhead area that is about a foot shorter than the layout benchwork. Thus, said lighting would not fit. I had to overlap the last one slightly. I blame this one on my children for disturbing me constantly while drawing, and not for the fact that I'm a dumbass.
The second problem is that when I turned them on...only two bulbs came on out of all eight! It appears that the circuit, which I thought had only two small spot lights on it actually has some upstairs circuits coming off of it. WTF! Who wired this thing? I have to blame the people that finished the basement instead of the fact that I'm a dumbass.
So this weekend we go get a box, a switch, some more wire, and a breaker. Let's do it the way I should have done it since day one!
