    i just had some additional storage space added to my attic this morning. the existing storage floor already had a light bulb on its side, but now i got this other side thats totally pitch black. whats the most cost effection way to add a light source up there? I thought about one of those small touch lights LED thaat run on batteries. Can batteries handle the heat up there in the summer months though? Any suggestions? :rolleyes:

    Did you have it sheet rocked?

    If not, just run power off the light fixture to a new one.

    It's not a hard project. Just go down to the "big box" home improvement store, browse their book selection and pick up the one on home wiring.

    There'll be about a two page section that describes how to do what these guys are talking about. Easy. Inexpensive.
