Hunter Original Fan Installation

I took the Hunter Original Fan out of our old house and installed it in the Radio Room.  A bit of a chore as it is heavy,  mounts differently than normal fans and there was no box in the ceiling.

First to find the center of the room:


Next to make the hole.   The original builder decided to put a wall scone in instead of a ceiling light.  Later that was removed and the box was plastered over.  But that’s another story.


Then a metal pancake box screwed to the joist.  BTW,  I found the layout mark on the joist for where the ceiling light was originally planned to be located.  Notice the u-bolt fan mount.  It is lag screwed into the joist.  I had to drill through the electrical box for the lag screws.
