I believe I have found the ideal products I need for my basement ceiling "finishing".
First is this product: http://www.ceilinglink.com/install.htm
The second is this product: https://www.empirewest.com/store/series.cfm/SeriesID:14/CategoryID:2#194-1392
The two combined will give me the lowest-profile suspended ceiling I think I can get.
My questions are:
-I want to mount lights within the spaces between the floor joists; what type should I use in concert with the translucent tiles?
-How do I mount said lights (ie. mount to joist, mount to box attached to joist, etc)?
-Is the above going to be safe to do (regardless of local codes)?
Thanks for any input, and if I was unclear or you need any further info, just ask!
