Sunday I ran the final junction boxes for the lighs in the great room, 18' up, working off of a skinny  scaffold plank.  While up that high, I finished taping the SIP seams. Between each box I left a pigtail loop of  wire so that if I need to add more lights, it'll be easy to do.  I had calculated the number of lumens for the space, based on numbers I found online, which were 5000 lumens for 250 sq.ft.  The great room is about 750 sq. ft.  The lights I'm planning on using are 1200 lumens each for a total of 14,400.  But they are up high and we have a huge amount of glass, so the end result of how it will look is a bit unknown.  Thus the option to add more.

Started to set lights for the garage yesterday.  I had bought a number of 8' T5 fixtures at HD back in December.  Now with one garage door working, I could get scaffolding in to work off of.  So much nicer especially went I have the entire width of three planks to stand upon. Each 8' fixture puts out 20,000 lumens, the equivalent of 25 can lights! And uses the equivalent electricity of 2 - 100 watt bulbs.  I'll try to get them finished today and then move on to the outside lights and receptacles.  Plumbing is calling me but I'm trying to focus and finish the wiring details.

Scaffolding in the great room. It was not fun up that high.
4" deep junction boxes attached to the ceiling. You can also see the taped seams. The tape is to eliminate humidity from passing through the joint and condensing under the outside panel which would lead to future rot. Most contractors don't realize this and the result has been big problems several years down the road.
