This is what I did yesterday. Pulled out my old frame and replaced it with a new one and then re-punched down the 30 cat6 network connections I have in the house.

I still have to do all the RG6 cabling to another panel underneath.

Slowly it's getting cleaned up!

Eventually I'll finish the theatre and show pictures of that. It's more interesting.

Wow. Bet your thumbs are sore now!

I have a 6-port punchdown block waiting for me to have time to refit my 5 home phone lines... but I've been very reticent to get it going.

This weekend I did finish putting down a layer of Dri-Core subfloor in the unfinished utility area of my first floor (under the stairs), so now I can safely stack boxes without worry of water damage. Boring, but essential!

I'm looking to do that in the theatre area. Unfortunately the floor is incredibly unlevel, and the ceiling isn't that high, so there will be some things to work around.

Where did you get it?

The Dri-Core? Home Depot. They're running a promotion right now, you get a gift card of some value (forget what) if you buy $750 worth of Dri-Core (at $6.49 a sheet, that's 115 sheets or enough to cover about 460 square feet).

Unlevel floor? Can you let loose a can of self-levelling floor "stuff"? (See how well-versed I am in contractor talk? )

With the dry-core, you can buy some plastic levellers. They work pretty well. My floor was VERY uneven in some areas and I had to stack a few levellers together in a few spots.

Or try using Delta FL. Similar idea to Dricore but in a roll and you choose the subfloor material be it OSB or plywood.
