I am still drawing up the plan for my house and have not decided to "home brew" or go simple with a fire engine.

I'm in the same boat (Sydney) - can't even get Fiire to respond on the question of freight, but if that's going to be their response...
We could do a 3-way purchase, and ship the domestically with Auspost... cheaply?
EDIT: Does anybody know how big/heavy the boxes are? Might be able to ask my mate in San Francisco to re-ship more cheaply...
Going by many of the previous posts, I guess it's a good thing to install more wires than you think you'll ever need. This works great in a new house or during major renovations, but what's the best way to wire an older house? For example, I live in a 100+ years old house where the previous owners pulled a gazillion phone wires to everywhere, but of course no CAT5/6.
Is it feasible to have only 1 wire to each room, and then use ethernet switches (possible daisy chained)?
