I've done this kind of thing for money in the past, but I'm far more
into teaching people how to do it themselves. I'd be happy to take a
look at it and make some recommendations based on your layout and
building construction, and get you (or your kids or whoever) jump
started on the skills. (The skills really are quite easy to acquire.
The hard (and expensive) parts are things like running cable, but

Some seeder questions, though:

1) How old is the building?
