An alternative to running the wire inside the walls is to run it on the outside of the wall and use a plastic wire cover to hide it. Doesn't looka as nice but if you can't get into the walls, a problem I had in my cabin where the walls were 6-inch logs, then it's better than nothing. -----Original Message----- From: pctech-bounces@xxxxxxxxxxxx [mailto:pctech-bounces@xxxxxxxxxxxx] On Behalf Of Gary Kuznitz Sent: Thursday, October 12, 2006 12:02 AM To: PC Technical Discussion for iSeries Users Subject: Re: [PCTECH] Home office design On 11 Oct 2006 at 14:32, Carmen (Carmen Nuland <pctech@xxxxxxxxxxxx>) commented about Re: [PCTECH] Home office design:
I have to agree about the outlets ... You can never have too many.
office is set up with two sets of 4-plex on the one wall where the
was going to be. I really would like to have a UPS system, but for
now I'm just
using individual surge protectors. Make sure you have all the wires
you'll need run through the walls before the drywall is on. I would
to have CAT installed to a couple of other rooms in the house - not
office, but it sounds like too much work now.
It really isn't that hard to run wires inside the walls. If you have the right tools it makes the job a lot easier. One tool that can be a big help is called the WallSnake. You can get it at: http://wallsnake.com/ If you don't feel like doing it yourself there are people that specialize in running wires inside walls. If you live in Southern California I know someone that is very reasonable. Gary Kuznitz
Not just home office design, but general house... Phone lines should be in every room - even those you don't think
you'll use a
phone; and don't forget the garage (we did)! Speaker wire is another
think about before the drywall goes up; we knew we couldn't afford to
speakers for every room right away, but we ran wire to specific spots
room, marked it on a "map", and just drywalled over. Now, we can
slowly buy as
we can afford, and cut the holes in the ceiling to install the
the map indicates; if you leave enough cable slack, you don't have to
holes exact to the position of the wire. Our "office" is really another bedroom - complete with a small closet. Since we weren't going to be storing clothes, my husband installed
we have paper and printer supplies, extra cables, photo albums, and
else I can squeeze in there. It's nice to have all that tucked away
