Micheal used the junction box to trace and cut out the hole in the ceiling.
We learned at this point that we should have cut from the bottom up because cutting from the attic down caused chipping on the ceiling.
When installing a ceiling fan you need to purchase a mounting kit that will go between the joists in the ceiling. This is necessary to support the weight and movement of the fan.
Next Micheal attached the main assembly of the fan.
We had to again fight the crazy wiring as the fan required more wires than were available in the box. On my first wiring attempt the fan dimmer instead ran the lamp/outlet on the side wall...FAIL! So I went back to my handy dandy picture:
...and was able to make it work!!
After the electrical was complete we just followed the very detailed instructions and voila!
I love it!
