Pancake LED light install

You might call these pancake, pot lights, wafer lights, can lights, or just ceiling lights. I have installed them in the dining room, office, and now the master closet. In the theater room project, we used 4" mini can lights. Boy do I wish I knew about these pancakes before that project! These have a Greater light output, better light distribution, lower energy use (13w), increased flexibility in positioning (can be installed in extremely shallow spaces), and are much easier to install. I would absolutely recommend these over traditional "can" lights!

Supplies:
6x Lithonia LED Wafer Lights 3500k (warm-ish color)
Cerro 14/2 Copper Wire
Electrical boxes
Lutron Dimmer switch

Cool Tools:
Ryobi Brushless Hammer Drill
