I wish I did. I was gonna try exposed wires with a cover going down the wall but thought it would not look good in the end.
Some things are better to just hire a professional for. I have cathedral ceilings also and wanted to wire for two new ceiling fans. Found a licensed electrician who ran the wires AND hung the two fans for $100 cash! I was going to hang the fans myself but he said he'd do it for the same money. He was fast and the $100 was well spent IMO.

You changed your first floor to 9" ceilings? I'm not sure how houses are constructed in your area, most of ours are all brick but that would be one heck of a job, considering you'd have to vertually raise the roof. That'* I'd like to have been there when you did it.

As for mods........ I've made several hundred so there'* just to many to list. I've live in the same house for 21 years. It sure helps to be handy around the house.

I'm confused, based on the original topic I thought it was renovations that you have done!

No one specified, so I listed mods from the original floor plan. The house doesn't even have a roof yet. I'm not the only one who changed to 9'.
