Home Office (Cabling)

Hey Everyone!

Yesterday I went to my first softball practice of the year, and I am sore. After shagging balls and hitting through a bucket of balls my back is killing me. We had a small turn out but it was OK because I did have another project to work on when I got home.

Once I got home, and into some work clothes, I gathered my tools and got to work running cable in my attic.

In the picture above you can see my tool kit, drill bits, a dremel, my switch and some cables. There are a few more things there but meh. You can see that there is a little door on the wall. I had to crawl in there and go to the front of the house all while dragging two cables and a box cutter. I was using my phone as a flashlight. It was super tight and hot since there was insulation on both walls.

Once I got the cables in the correct spot I had to cut a hole through the insulation and the wall. I fished the cable through it so I could terminate the ends. The second cable ran across the floor at the front and into the crawl space on the other side of the room, where the process repeated. Below, you can see the mostly finished product. I have to get nuts to snug it up because the walls are too thin, but after that It will be good to go .

I have to get the nuts and tables for desks and start moving things up there! I’m so excited.

We have a plumbing evaluation today right after I get out of work today. I hope everything is good for the most part, but I know we have some blockage. I hope it can be resolved easily. It is neat, our plumbing and heating company sent out coupons for a free evaluation. I would be dumb not to take advantage of that!

Tomorrow I am going over to a co-workers house right after work to set up his work email on his home computer. After that I have to go home and get ready for yet another masonic initiation. We are going through a second degree.

Throughout both of these days I want to get my office all done and set up so we can start getting a feel for a permanent spot. We have a file cabinet at my parents house that we need to bring over, as well as a few more things. This will also free up the bedroom that we are currently using as an office. I need to get quarter round trim on the floor but then we can decorate it as a spare bedroom for now.

That is all or today! I hope the rest of my week and yours goes smoothly. I’ll see you all back again tomorrow! 😀 😀

  1. What it takes to do a renovation, remodel, or adding to a home is intense–so much work! It amazes me to watch it happen, but it feels so nice once it comes together. Plus, there is something special about making a house a home when you know you have put your time and energy into making it your own–perfect for raising a family (congrats by the way!) Sending smooth “reno-” wishes your way! 🙂

  2. It’s coming together!

    We have a similar crawl space entry which covers about half of our house. Yours sounds much tighter.

    I love that you already have the outlet covers on the outlet! Can’t be too prepared for that little guy!
