Kirk may have had Scotty, but I have Scott!
We have power!!
We have strung the cabling for the in-floor outlets that will be below our game table. I have a few images showing them below including one with the first power cable. I was quite surprised how easy it was to feed that cabling through the conduit. In the third image you can see where I fed it into the conduit by the wall.
In the fourth image, you can see where we have power, and a conduit for a HDMI cable for a projector.
This is placed in the center of the game room, right above the game table.
I'm not planning on having this in place when we move in. If we decide we want one though, it will be prewired and ready to go.
The fifth image is another view of the north wall. Near the top you will see some angled supports and you might be able to see a power box.
The ceiling will follow that angle, similar to a tray ceiling, the ceiling right over the game table is about a foot higher than the rest of the room.
Along that angle, will be a monitor which can be used to allow for friends to join our gaming sessions by services such as Skype, Google, or other video conference programs.
Oh, you may also notice two other things.
First, we have a lot of room in the ceiling.
Second, the game room is on the west end of the house, as is our bedroom upstairs!
When designing the house with our architect, managing sound was a big factor.
We have an 18 inch truss and the drop down section around most of the game room.
Once we complete the wiring for the network, we will be insulating that space.
We also don't have any air return ductwork that connects upstairs and downstairs (ask me how I know this is important, sorry honey!)
We will also have some materials on the walls and cabinet doors that will help absorb sound, so I can be gaming downstairs without keeping my wonderful wife awake upstairs:) I'll post more about that as we install that.

Mark really doesn't like to talk about himself, the house is much more interesting.
