Need advice installing chandelier in staircase

By July 31, 2019 2 Comments

Our basement stairs are a straight shot down and I want to hang a chandelier. There’s a joist in the ceiling running the length of the stairs and it’s about 3 inches off center. I was thinking of using a saddle box to mount and hang the light but this is just enough off center where it’s noticeable. And therefore since the joist is in the “middle” I can’t fit a normal old work box. Are there any other options?


edit: figured out i can use a 1/2″ deep ceiling pan and this should solve my problem. Thanks all
