Unfortunately, when we were planning the cabling with the electrician, way back when the living room was still just a figment of our imaginations, we forgot to include 2 antenna outlets which allows us to watch something on TV and at the same time record something different .  It’s a good thing we have empty ductwork from the living room to the basement so we could thread a second cable through and drill another hole in the wall for the second outlet.

Not too long after that Martin found the time to finish all the cabling in the basement.  It’s finally done and looks great!

Finally Martin was able to start the wiring for the multimedia in the house.  First he took off the frame and the plastic coating around the wire…

…then he put all the cables in the right postion…

…the wall jack is screwed on and the modules are set in…

Of course the other side of the wires has to be done too.  Martin hung our second electic box on the wall a few days ago but he hadn’t dared to start puting the cables in the right oder.


The mess of cables was put in order and the first Das Kabelwirrwarr wurde geordnet, die erste din rail is screwed on…


… then they were put in the correct IDC terminal.  At least I think that’s what it’s all called.  I don’t know how to translate all the words into English so let’s just say that he has started to get our cables in order so we can plug in the phone, TV and internet through the house.

Just a few more to go and then we are done!!!

So langsam wird’s auch mit der Multimediaverkabelung. Herr Sch. von der Firma homeway hat uns heute die bestellten Materialien persönlich vorbei gebracht und Martin gleich an einer Dose gezeigt, wie er alles ordnungsgemäß verkabeln kann.

Dann werden wir heute abend mal ein paar Strippen ziehen.

Nur mit der SAT-Anlage sind wir noch nicht weiter. Wolfram war von Dienstag bis Mittwoch bei uns und statt mit den Kindern zu spielen haben wir uns mit LNBs, F-Steckern, Receivern und einem vermeintlich zu schwachen Signal beschäftigt. Also schauen wir weiterhin über DVB-T.

Vor lauter Aufregung im Keller haben wir unsere neuen Lampen ganz vergessen. Gestern konnten wir Lampen im Windfang, Küche und neben der Eingangstür anschließen.

Kimberly bought 3 new bar stools for the kitchen that weren’t only the perfect color and adjustable but they were also very affordable.  Now we can finally eat breakfast in the kitchen.


Here are some more pictures of the front door and the new door handle.  Much better!!

Notice anything?


How about now?


Yep, you’re seeing things correctly, today as Kimberly arrived at the house the electrician was standing in the kitchen checking the switches and  plugs.  He had hooked up our electricity and now we have light in the house.  Well, that is we will have light in the house as soon as we get some light bulbs to hang in the rooms.  We chose light sensors in the mudroom and the hallways so you never have to flip the switch when you come in.

We also have our very own door bell that really goes ding dong.

Water should be in our house soon but until then it was nice to see there was also a water meter hooked up and ready to go.  Now to wait for the waste pipes to be connected.
