To replace the four crusty old flourescent lights in the garage I bought three tracks that I can direct, but provide plenty of ambiant illumination.

Skylight enclosure trim

I still need to do corner pieces, but the area above the kitchen is drywalled, primered, and textured.

The only difference from the original plan is that the vertical walls are offset from the threshold. This makes for a bigger space and will make it easier to obscure the attic entry and light transformer.

Cable lights will allow sunlight to pass through in the day. I might just go with these Tiellas.

They'll benefit from being farther overhead than in an ordinary eight foot ceiling configuration.
