Are these canned lights insulted to ensure no heat loss thru the attic - I want recessed light in a room with vaulted ceilings and attic above. I want to be sure I won't sacrifice heat energy through the holes in the ceiling.

Hello, The cans are not insulated. The cans are sealed. In Austin, we are a bit more concerned about cooling loss. The best thing to do in our climate is to insulate with spray foam insulation to the roof deck. Then it doesn't matter what is going on at the ceiling because the thermal envelope is not penetrated. In the case of this project, the vault is a "sub-vault" below the roof vault, and there is an insulated attic space above.

What kind of electrical box do I use for a ceiling fan in a vaulted ce - Vaulted ceilings and ceilings fans?

You use a pancake, or a low profile box. Most ceiling fans allow a certain amount of slope in their downrod connection. If you are placing the ceiling fan in the center of a vault, then you should plan on blocking down with the wood framing to allow for a level mount of the ceiling fan, and drill the electrical through the center of the block. Make sure that the block is big enough to allow for the ceiling fan mount plate to be completely supported.

Not sure what you mean by "high hats", but if you mean the lighting, they are compact fluorescent, recessed cans.

Great ceiling ... Did you follow the roof lines or was this a structure just built up in the attic (similar to tray) not necessarily going all the way up to roof lines?
