    Just wondering on best practise......I am replacing a PB ceiling with a new suspended one, and wish to install recessed lights once plastered. However its obviously a bit easier to run cables for the lights before boarding (well, in my head, anyway). I assume a plasterer wont thank me for cutting the 63mm holes for the lights before he arrives?

    Is the better idea to coil up the cables in roughly the right places above the pb then get a child to stick their hand up thru my newly-cut holes to fish out the wires once the plasterer has worked his magic?

    Probably best to cut them after.
    Just make a plan of the position of joists and wires.
