There are a ton of things we're going to do while we're here at our first house, some are still on the decision block, some are deff getting done. This project is remodeling our basement. There are a few reason why we want to do this. Some of which include: No insualation in the entire basement. Not one stich Wood Panel walls (it's not the 60's anymore) 2x3 framing Old electric Primative A/V cable So we're:... network the entire house, coax, fiber, cat6, patch panels, svideo, drywall everything, insulate, add drops for 7.1 surround, building a reinforced wall for the 50"+ lcd tv unit, new carpet, new windows, fresh electric, new theatre lighting, fresh paint, etc Here are some shots of the floor plan when it's all said and done. (update: everywhere you see 2 network drops its now one figure i dont really need 12 in my house.. one in each room 3 in the office is fine) Downstairs Upstairs Here is some shots of the before and after demo.
