We have ripped our 1930's bathroom out and walls are bare brick, the celing was in a very bad way so took that all down. This is a good time to do electrics for spot lighting but finding it hard to find electrican. How difficult is it to do afterwards, I guess floor boards have to come up, we have loft extensions and I did not want to cut into boards as they are stripped and it would spoil the look,

Any suggestions????

It is really easy to do once the ceiling is up. Everything can be done from the holes for the spotlights.

Since the ceiling is down as I assume you can see the joists then it would be a good idea to drill some holes in them so that your electrician can run the cable between the spotlights. Also remember to drill holes so that you can run the cabl eto the first spotlight from the existing light postion.
