A follower to this sub but first time posting.
I am working on a kitchen remodel in our home and replaced the cabinets and countertops. There was previously a light above the sink between the two old cabinets, I found that there was a board screwed into the soffit with an electrical box attached to it to mount the light. I removed the board when I was taking out the old cabinets and found underneath, a big hole in the soffit where the power connections for the light came through.
I would like to install a new light for over the sink and was wondering if anyone had any suggestion on how to either repair the hole for mounting a new light or if there is something else I should consider.
I did take some pictures of both the hole and the board that was in place but can’t find a way to add them to my post.
Thanks in advance for any and all replies! Images Soffit https://imgur.com/gallery/lR0asLC
