So I'm renovating a house for myself, its currently gutted down to the brick and framing will be happening soon.
I feel like this is a pretty unique opportunity to get everything in the walls that I can think of before the drywall goes in. Even if I never get around to installing everything the infrastructure is there.
Right now, planning on a dual system, radiant heat floors throughout with some ac ducts coming down from the 3rd floor. I want to put in cat5 cable, tv cable and speaker cables to all the rooms. Laundry chute from the 3rd floor to the second floor laundry room. Also thinking of roughing in extra plumbing and wiring from the roof to the basement in case I ever want to try out solar stuff.
Not saying I will do EVERYTHING on my wish list, but I would at least love to be thinking ahead to the possibilities. This is also going to be a fairly slow, renovation. Doing most of the work myself and not in a huge hurry. Just want yo try to get it right the first time.
Totally open to any suggestions folks around here might have...and interested to hear your ideas.
