  1. With my deck refurb in the finishing painting stage I can now work on next outside project. For whatever reason the rest of the house has vinyl siding and soffits, but he carport seems to have been left out. For many years I have just painted it, but now I just want the vinyl soffit and be done with it. Of course while I am at it a few upgrades are in order. First up is a improvement to the lighting. When it rains or I need to work after dark the carport offers the best place and plenty of work area. But only two 4 ft fluorescent fixtures provide very poor light. So I am thinking to add eight 4ft long LED fixtures. That should cover the 22x16 ft area with plenty of light. In theory. So today I have removed the old fixtures. Conducted chemical warfare against the wasps and hornets that had taken up residence inside the guts of the fixtures. These lights have been up for 33 years according to the date stamped on one of them. You can see in the picture at one time the ceiling was a golden / yellow color. Not worried about painting this, I intend to cover the works with vinyl soffit. I have enough in stock to do about 2/3 of it so this should be a $100 project. Now I need 4 outlet boxes, 2 outlets each to give power to the lights. For this project like my shop I want to be able to unplug them if I need to repair or replace. Used this jig to cut the 450 angles for the box shells we shall call them. Cutting up all the pieces I assembled and used glue and air nails to make 4 little boxes. Drilled pocket holes in them to attached to ceiling from inside the box, leaving enough room to put the metal electrical box in place. All sanded, edges rounded on the router table and ready for paint. Which the 1st coat is now drying. Could not get an answer from anyone if the outlets without a cover can be used UNDER a carport or not. If the time comes to sell the house and someone insists they MUST have covers the boxes are wide enough to allow the use of the covered outlets like I used here.
