Hi all! So, i moved house nearly 12 weeks ago and i'm ready to start my new project! You can say that i was bitten by the Home Cinema bug!! I have whole house plan but the scope of this project primarily concerns the living room, AV for kitchen and the loft. The loft work will focus on the network installation for the house as i will use this area to locate a data cabinet with Broadband modem, wireless router, switch and patch panels for house wiring. The kitchen is a project we are not entirely embarking on for time being. Basically, a family member will be carrying out all the carpentry work for us and as he lives far away, i need him to get the work done whilst he visits The kitchen as it stands, is large in size and has access through to a utility where i originally planned to locate the kitchen and exam prep setup. Unfortunately, during the cold weather before Christmas, it became apparent that the lack of heat in the utility would cause issues with condensation. With this, we now plan to have a cupboard built in the kitchen corner to house the ktichens XBMC client and exam prep hardware. The rest of the project for kitchen involves running cables in the walls, mounting tv, mounting sonos Play:5 and lastly mounting a small 7" android tablet into the wall as a controller for sonos and xbmc. The living room will be where we focus the most time of the project as we plan to completely finish the room. The plan is to install a false chimney breast, inset the tv, inset the centre speaker, mount electric fire into false chimney, route all cables through walls, mount projector, mount screen and finally decorate. So to start the project off. Monday and the plumber visits to remove the old fireplace which is gas. With all removed i was ready for action on Tuesday night after work. So i start, and later decide that this will take a little longer than originally thought!!
