Recessed Lights! (2013-016)
I love recessed lighting, so I made custom recessed lighting for under the loft. Since I am only running an extension cord to the playhouse, I did not install hard wired recessed lights. Also, I only have about 5 and a half inches of clearance within the loft joists, which is too small for hard wired recessed lights. So instead I used LED cabinet lighting, which is usually meant for surface mounting, but I figured out a way to recess them using paper coffee cups. The cups help hold the lights in place and give a nice clean finish to the holes I had to cut into the drywall material. I made sure to get LED lights, which run a lot cooler than halogen lights that need more ventilation.
