New office: 1,200 feet of wire in 260 square feet

This time, I wanted to “do it right”.  So, I’m going to have two 15-amp circuits, one for each side of the office, with 4 outlets spaced every 4 feet or so.

There are 3 network lines and 4 phone lines, with outlets spaced every 6 feet.  I did cheap out and go with Cat 5e wire instead of Cat 6.  But I should be able to run Gigabit Ethernet everywhere in my office.

Four cables per outlet times 10 outlets works out to a LOT of wire.  1,200 feet, to be exact.  Not counting the ordinary power wiring…
