That was my exact thought also after discarding network and video wiring which I think is more flexibly implemented wirelessly these days (anything you put in the walls will be superseded by the time you are done mudding).

I disagree with this one. CAT5 cable has been around for over a decade and they keep adding things you can run over it. RG/6 coax hasn't changed in ages (unless you could that people used to use RG/59 a lot).

And if you can run "smurf tube" (flexible plastic conduit) or some other conduit, then you can run whatever wiring you want whenever you like. That's not going to be superseded by the time you are done mudding!
