I stuck natural slate directly to our brick fireplace wall. I first dampened the brick, back buttered the slate, then used a 1/2X1/2 trowel.

Not sure how I feel about those. Doesn't appear the driver box has any provision to mount it to anything, and I can't tell if the driver box is IC rated like the actual lamp is.

The size, Peter, and they don't appear to be line level powered.

Karen,

CBU does not help with joist deflection at all, nor does an additional layer of plywood really. Moreover, 3/8" ply is too thin to help and is hard to work with, 1/2" would be better.
