Okay, I have one of my classic "curiosity" questions:

Is there a kind of recessed can light that can be installed in a 45º Cape Cod Ceiling? Or anything (listing, code, etc) that prevents it?

With a low ceiling (even the non-sloped part) up here, and no light except for lamps, I'd like to eventually install recesed-lights, but don't think I can in the front-back slopes.

Thanks
Ian A.

Yes, there are can especially for sloped cielings available in most brands and models. But any can that has an "aimable" trim would work in most cases, so long as the thermal cut-off if any, were located in the most uppermost portion of the can when installed.
