Server room
About 50% of the wire reaching my server room.

That's how you route wall wires!

1st floor data runs
3/27/13- They have run all my wires now and today I go on site to test and approve this end of things. I had to train all these guys about running data since it is just not done in China, except for network wire. I have run Cat 6 , 16/2, 22/4, 18/2, RG-6 just about everywhere. Since my house is 3 stories, I had then make a wire route to the server room on the 1st floor using 2 5" PVC drain pipes. Each floor feeds wires down the pipes and home run to the server room.
Next week my custon 9' server rack will be built and delivered to my house. This is a top quality server rack that they build in Kunming. My cost for build, delivery and install is $370.
I leave for HK in 4 days to pick up my Panasonic AE 8000 projector. Cheaper for me to go get it to bring back into China and avoid the 20% import tax the slap on electronics. Total robbery!
The complete house build is scheduled to be finished end of May. Until then, I'm on site everyday making sure all is done exactly my way (US standards). Since there is no such thing as inspections in China, I have to take this role through each phase of the build. But the time it's all done, I'll know more than I care to about construction in China. It's quite a learning experience!
