Well, this DIYer doesn’t know what to do now. Kitchen renovation and I wanted to take off the piece that goes across the cabinets and install a wall light. Purchased an old work junction box, cut the hole (which was very difficult) and now I see why. Am I SOL on a wall light and need to put the top piece back on or is there something I can do?
They sell “pancake” junction boxes at Home Depot and Lowe’s, they are very shallow and about the depth of the Sheetrock
No worries… with a wood chisel notch out the header just enough so that the wire is flush behind the box.
You hit the window header. There may be a void a few inches higher that you may be able to put a full depth box in.
