Welcome to my blog

We moved to Ireland with the notion of building our "dream" home in May 2007 after purchasing the site earlier on that year. Mr C is Irish and originally from Limerick but he remains in the UK during the week, his job is running www.cruise.co.uk and earning the bucks that will hopefully allow us to "live the dream."

It's taken us almost two years but ground will be broken on the site by the end of May 09!! A lot of blood, sweat & loads of tears (all mine!) have gone into this project already, we left a fabulous house behind in Newcastle...and now for my Kevin McLeod bit, "can the new build can live up to my expectations and the old house we left behind"? I'm not sure...keep watching my blog and you'll find out!!

Day 3....getting technical

Spent quite a bit of time today exchanging emails with the extremely helpful Ian from 21st Century Electrics.  I got Ian's contact from the Homebuilding & Renovating forum I had spotted him giving out sensible advice there, (I especially liked the post that informed me cheapest place to buy CAT6 cable was ebay!!)

The pressure has been on to finalise what cables we will be running for future AV systems.  We won't have much budget to add all the swanky boys toys to the system for a while, but know that the cabling needs to be in place now, boring yes, but has to be done.  I have found it so difficult to get any sense out of anyone til today, thanks to Ian,  I almost understand now the difference between CAT5 and CAT6 cabling, and what a 4x8 matrix can do for me!!  Should have this sorted now by the end of the week (she said with fingers tightly crossed).
