Stair light vs stud

Amáda had the idea to add 3 lights to the stair well. She wanted them centered over stair treads, and spaced evenly along the wall. As luck would have it, one of those light junction boxes landed right on a stud. I had to cut out the stud and do some custom framing. It was a real pain, but it will look nice on the other side.
