I will be installing/or having someone install t-bar ceiling in my basement. Should I do the electrical rough-in for pot lighting before or after the t-bar?
Also, what is the ideal flooring for a concrete basement?
Do your rough in before the T-bar grid is installed as it will be easier to complete.
At this point you should know how many and where you want to place your pot lights. Preferably symmetrically in the grid pattern throughout the space. So when you staple the wiring at each pot light location leave enough excess wiring that you can place the light in the correct location in the grid and tile.
Good luck with your project
As previously mentioned, best do any work prior to installing t-bar as drilling, hammering, screwing and pulling wires in after can certainly bend your T-bar and usually slows the electrical installation process, costing you more money and time.
