Recessed lighting installed under roof eaves

Anyone have any tips to share on installing recessed lighting fixtures underneath the eaves?

This would be an remodel installation.

The lights would need to be listed for a damp location and have a minimal height so that they could fit in the space.

Most of the lights I've seen require access above the fixture for mounting, this would not be possible because the space is extremely tight. Fishing the wire wouldn't be too difficult, but are there fixtures avaible that allow mounting from the 'light bulb' side?

Yes there are recessed fixtures that mount from below. I know Lightolier makes them and I'm sure most all the other manufacturers do too. Not sure about the height possibilities.
