Rough-in Planning

July 4, 2020

Today I pulled the trigger on ordering all the electrical supplies.

I’ll be running 18/8 (18 gauge, 8 conductor) to every location a sound treatment panel will be installed for DMX controlled full-color lighting.

I’ve decided on a combination of un-dimmed line-voltage and remotely dimmed low-voltage lighting to keep EMI (electromagnetic interference) under control. The outlets for sensitive equipment will be wired as home-runs to reduce ground-loops.

There will be a hatch in the ceiling of the vestibule to access the mechanical room.

The HVAC system will use a high-static-pressure concealed-duct mini-split and an ERV to heat, cool, dehumidify and bring in fresh air.
