3839 Finished Sq Ft.
Unifinished walkout basement
Since the house is being built by a developer I cannot do any of the wiring myself. For this reason, every single wire costs me. The focus of pre-wiring is primarily for anything I cannot wire after walls are up. I cannot access the second floor - the walkup attic has a tongue and grove plywood floor that is screwed and glued.
The home comes with pre-wires for all external doors and ground floor windows. I am paying an extra amount to home run all contacts and also to contact all upstairs windows. I will be going with an Elk M1 most likely - but the lack of a humidity sensor may push me to get an HAI.
The home comes with 5 locations wired and terminated with 2 cat5/2coax. I am having those swapped with pipe chases or conduit. I want to run conduit to every location I would have that anyway - so this should save me a little money. I have spec'd out 6 2" PVC conduits run from basement to the attic. As well as 18 other conduit/pipe chases.
I will be ALC/OnQ to all switches in the house.

Pre-Wiring for 12 Zones.
Will probably go with NuVo

Here is the plan for the first floor, I added in some changes by hand:
Here is the plan for the second floor:
The basement will be unfinished, but we had an architect draw up a plan for finishing the basement:
Also a plan for a finished attic:
My plan is to go room by room with diagrams, followed by images when built, followed by images when complete and automated.
