I am going to wire it. I plan on tackling some of that myself. I can handle running some Cat-5e and Coax to all the rooms, but that's just cause I'm a super nerd.

I might go Cat-6...just a consideration. Regardless you have a cool project on hand and I think you'll enjoy it.

I just spent all morning in a design conference for one of the many new HQ buildings we're drafting and everything will be Cat-6. Don't think you'll see a huge cost increase and you will see potential orders of magnitude in increased bandwidth over 5e or wireless.

I like wireless only for existing construction. I won't use it at work for security reasons.
