Re: New garage to HT build, comments welcome

Just going over lighting as I need to start ordering parts soon. Here's what I'm thinking I'll need for my room, taking into consideration I'll need some additional zones for my work area. Note these will be fed through a bank of Insteon dimmers (one for each zone) and the keypad scene control:

Zone 1: 3 Low voltage pucks above screen
Zone 2: 4 wall sconces
Zone 3: Riser/Walkway lights
Zone 4: Rope light in crown molding
Zone 5: Two 4" recessed IC rated cans (front)
Zone 6: 4 4" recessed IC rated cans (rear)

I'm going back and forth and wondering if the cans are really necessary since I have the 4 sconces. I'll be needing some nice soft light above my desk in the rear as well as above the entire rear (for seated guests/reading etc.), so I could even put the rear 2 scones on a separate zone. Also will small low voltage puck lights be an alternative (granted they won't be as bright but then again I don't like working in bright right, I prefer nice soft light)?

Edit: After further late night research it looks like I'll have a bit of a problem with recessed ceiling lights in a room within a room build. There is no way I'll be able to fit an IC rated recessed light with backing box into the ceiling so looks like that's out of the question. Interested to hear what others have done in this regard..

Cheers.
