re: I am building a new house looking for tips - SLIMNOLA
Make sure you're looking over the fine details. One of the things that I have went through so far is the small details. Like make the entryway casing match the top of my window casing. It wasn't until the house was framed and sheet rocked until we noticed we wanted it to be even. I had to pay fo...

re: I am building a new house looking for tips - SLIMNOLA
We're going a long power strip underneath the kitchen cabinets instead of having outlets in the back-splash. Run additional cat5/6 wires from the de-mark location just in case. Whole house lighting, smart switches, motion sensors (garage, laundry, pantry). Get a 2nd water meter for irrigation....

re: Help me make the right decision - Land Purchase - SLIMNOLA
If you have a budget, I would find a developer/builder that will work within your budget. If you're buying a lot and finding a custom builder, then you'll be looking at $150/sq foot. One thing I will share with my build is make sure your architect or draftsmen is precise with your design. Nothing...

re: Lutron Caseta vs Lutron RA2 - SLIMNOLA
Cool. I want to install the caseta in high traffic areas (living/kitchen, foyer, etc.), however I'm being told that I should go with RA2 Select and the caseta isn't a great option. I don't know if it's worth double the price to move towards the RA2 Select. Thoughts? ...

Lutron Caseta vs Lutron RA2 - SLIMNOLA
Looking for the pros & cons with these two. I do know the caseta has a limit of 50 devices vs 100 for RA. My question is what is considered a device? Is 3 light fixtures on one light switch considered 3 devices? I'm figuring around 30 recessed lights hooked up to about 6 3-way switches. ...

re: How to get fiber internet into the neighborhood - SLIMNOLA
It's underground. However, I think one of the issue with not getting it yet is due to the guy who is selling the lots. I get a sense he doesn't want them to dig in the area. I could be wrong but it wouldn't surprise me....
