Cable Guy!

Okay, first off, the title of this post should be read in Jim Carey's voice.  If you still don't get the reference, you probably don't get any of my jokes or references, and are probably not even reading this anymore...

Anyhow, we went to Guardian the other day to meet with Jim.  This is another one of those 3rd party companies that Ryan Homes makes you go through for anything done during construction.  They handle everything electrical, other than the actual power outlets.  They do all the outlets for cable, phone, and data, as well as security systems, intercoms, surround sound pre-wire and installation.  We decided to pay the $125 each for 8 cable outlets and 3 data jacks.  We use cell phones only, so we're having them use CAT-5 wire for the data jacks, but for resale purposes it works out because you can use those for phone line as well.  We also had them do the pre-wire for surround sound in the bonus room.  I thought it was pretty reasonable price at $595 for the pre-wire.  I don't really have much else to say about Guardian at this early stage, but I WILL say that our sales rep, Jim, was absolutely awesome.  He's got a ton of personality, and he is super helpful and knowledgeable about the products, but he is absolutely not pushy about trying to sell you anything more than you actually want.  I liked him so much that I probably will go back to him if I ever need any of their services in the future.

That's about all for now...sorry kids, no pictures this time.
