Got another relatively small problem with the "problem" house.
The ex-EC left us with octagonal boxes in the shower stalls... the stalls are tiled, and enclosed in glass. The only thing I know of acceptable is recessed cans with wet-location-listed trims on GFCI protection...
Any ideas out there? We're gonna have to cut tile for recessed cans, aren't we....

The NEC does NOT prohibit surface mounted light fixtures in the shower area. Look at 410.4(D) as Blackhat mentioned above. As log as you install a fixture rated for wet locations it would be just as acceptable as a recessed fixture. The height restrictions only apply to cord-connected, hanging, tracks, pendants and paddle fans.

I'm with you caselec, and blackhat. I think the point that 66 is trying to make is, that it is not the "normal" thing to do. I think that you will agree that most of the time shower lights are recessed can fixtures. They are in the residential applications that I've dealt with.
wageoghe, I didn't check your link, but my experience with lucifer lighting is that it is high dollar. I'm not saying that it isn't a good line of fixtures. Just get out your wallet.
