My husband and I recently made the move to our first home. There's been a ridiculous amount of complications along the way but our space is worth the fight. It's unusual in the fact that it's a 1917 Russian Church with a wide open floor plan (

) and it's almost completely void of wiring or tech in any way shape or form! So since we'll be starting from scratch, we're curious how you would fill in this blank "If I could start all over with my home tech I would ____!"

When it comes to outlets, we're almost entirely out of luck with only a few on the property, so some electrical work will need to be done to kick things off, but if you could have built your space to hold or showcase anything, what would it be?

We've already been struggling on the issue of where the TV will go (we have 8-30' windows) and where the record player should live to give the best sound. We've been toying with the idea of leaving a built in space for a projector (toilets and sinks must be purchased first!) and adding extra insulation behind appliances and other noise makers. What do you wish you could have done before you moved into your space? Is there anything that bugs you now that we should look at changing in our space?

We've always been the "make whatever you have work" type people instead of the "design in what you want" types! Ok, let us have it in the comments below!
