Home wiring

Building a new home or finishing a basement to add an entertainment space is an exciting time. You get to pour all of your dreams and visions into the plans and create it from the ground up. If you are starting to build, you’ve probably been out visiting model homes, looking through magazines, and visiting idea sites like Pinterest or Houzz. Maybe you have seen rooms with beautiful HDTVs hanging on the wall with no visible equipment in the same room. To accomplish looks like this, you do need to plan ahead. Unfortunately, most contractors and even electricians are not able to stay on top of the ever-changing landscape of technology the way we do. We are a licensed Technology Systems Contractor in the state of Minnesota. We often do the wiring electricians do not like to do and do not specialize in.
