I was adding 2 new additional basement lights today, I thought I was doing a good job of mounting everything correctly and securing the wire.
However when I finished and got someone else to look at it they pointed out that I may have mounted the lights too close to the beam.
I mounted them in that position because it would still let me crawl between the posts without hitting the lights, and It was easy to work on as I could sit on the concrete pier.
My question is: Is this light mounted too close the post? What electrical code dictates the minimum distance between the light and wood?
I'd like to not have to not have to take them down, but if It wouldn't pass inspection I'd definitely re-do it.
