I like the white on white colour scheme for your kitchen, my wife and I were thinking about doing the same but weren't sure how it would look and ended…

Your Connected Home. What have you done / what do you need?

We've got tv/data/pay access points in all the places where the TVs will be so hopefully we are all good on the wiring front for that. We haven't got…

I wasn't keen on the cameras being battery powered either but apparently they last for 6 months so that's pretty good, although obviously I'd take it with a slight pinch…

I don't think it's a huge amount of money involved but it might as well be working for us than PD!
I was reading your blog and the font makes it…

The two main things we were worried about were losing interest on our money (or for other people having to pay extra interest on their loan) and that if PD…

Some of the stuff at least looks pretty useful and affordable like the WeMo switches and the Netgear Arlo. Once our house is built I'd definitely look at getting…

We changed the payment schedule as the PD one was paying them the money at an earlier stage than what the HIA standard says. It probably doesn't make a…

We are building VANCOUVER 33 with PORTER DAVIS

Sounds like a shocking job by your broker, good luck with the loan approval and then council!
Wow you're going to be super close to your build, hopefully it all goes…

Porter Davis Upgrades and Costs

Looking at our quote from a couple of months ago projector pre-wiring is separate from speaker pre-wiring. Projector was about $435, to get a 5.1 system pre-wiring…

My understanding has always been that Porter Davis would be doing the application for us, I guess I can add that to my list of questions next time I talk…

I think Sonos would certainly be useful in terms of being an easy setup for being able to play music throughout the house etc so that would be good. …

I really hate all the uncertainty of not being sure who is meant to be doing what and when etc.

Any thoughts on using the Sonos system as a home theatre system in a theatre room? I'm tossing up between getting a normal wired system in place vs a…

That doesn't sound great, given you're in an established neighborhood going from memory it seems really weird that you wouldn't already have one. Hopefully it's a quick, easy and…

We hope this is a sign that our site supervisor has high standards and realises that we (and Darbecca) do as well.
That's good news I'd say, better that everything gets…

I certainly want it to be built properly and to spec. In the context of building a house it probably applies more to if there is a delay of a…
