I would like to add an additional ceiling fixture in my kitchen over the sink. Currently, there is nothing. I have plaster and lath ceilings. I'm afraid of cutting into the ceiling because I've read that plaster and lath can be tricky. I plan on connecting the new box from the existing light fixture. Does anyone have any advice on how to cut into the ceiling without bringing the whole thing down?!

Thanks

Yes, there is attic space above.

I don't know what you mean by "joist cavity" but the new fixture will be surface mounted over the sink about 3-4 feet away from the existing fixture.

I have a hanging pendant light that currently has a 3-prong outlet. I would like to hardwire/mount it to the ceiling.

Thanks!
