All the runs merged through the utility closet. Using a 4" dryer vent tube to pass the wires through. Also, since the studs aren't spaced 16" apart, I had to secure two 2x6 boards across three studs for mounting the wall mounted rack.

Always cool to see others' home network setups. Looking forward to seeing its completion. Good luck!

Yes, I even have my sun room wired up for Ethernet. I figured if there's ever a need to put some device in here that only has Ethernet at least its pre-wired. Debating on installing an outdoor wireless access point in here too so my back yard can have wireless signal.

Recently wired and punched down a 2 story office building. Nothing like making your fingers raw with over 250 punch downs over 4 punch down racks over the course of a week.

Very cool. Looking forward to more updates.
It appears that this isn't a house being built currently. Is it correct to assume that you are doing all of this while living in your house. More specifically, you are doing all of this work to a finished house and not during the building process. If so then how hard has it been for you to make some of those runs?
Again, loving all of the stuff you are putting in and looking forward to updates.
