Yep I'm a noob and no I'm not a e-tech. I am building a Storm Shelter out of a 10' diameter by 20' long tank. It will be buried and have access to a 120 volt line from the house and (2) 12 volt Optima car batteries charged by a high quality trickle charger and a 40+ watt solar charger.
I am more of a mechanic/metal fabricator and I need some help on the lighting inside. The inside will be painted white with some shelving being natural color plywood. I was planning on using Led Puck lights but since I've started doing some research, I had no idea there was so much to hooking up a system like that.
I was planning on running the main lighting with the 120 v supply from the house and some separate "emergency" lights from the 12v batteries, but now I'm not sure if that's the right direction. The lights need to be compact, not like a regular bulb fixture, and there's no way to do any type of recessed lights. The shelter will be connected to the inside of my house so I will be using this space as more of a man cave with a work shop so I'm looking for more of a 4k range light.
As I said, I'm not really interested in "building" some elaborate system but I could use some direction and advise.
I would appreciate the help. I also have some pictures of the current state of shelter but I'm assuming you have to have more than 1 post to upload pics.
