I've also learned we are getting NBN connections, so know wondering where I will put that! Hopefully I will get the choice. Thanks for the input.
@KellieSpec homes/apartments never, ever have enough powerpoints. Even later on down the track you will be doing something and think 'Gee I wish I had one there'. Being a sparky myself, I believe that you cannot have enough. This doesn't mean that you will use them all at once, however trying to get behind the lounge or bed to try and plug something in is a pain. A charging station is a must in todays world and would only involve a small bracketless shelf and a powerpoint/usb charger beside it in a handy location. My wife just loves the one I installed in the hallway for the vacuum.
Thanks for joining in the discussion @Johnnynl. It's fantastic to have you as part of the Workshop community. It sounds like you have amazing experience and knowledge to share - retired Electro/Mechanical Engineer, Information Systems Manager, Computer Technician, Carpenter and Joiner! I'm really looking forward to seeing more of your posts and reading about your projects and plans.
Can I ask what's a draw string?
Sorry, its just a peice of string/twine, strong enough to pull some tru-rip 3 core power cable up or down the wall at a later stage, you just tie it off to a nail top n bottom so you can get at it later.
The most time consuming job adding hotpoints after the build is drilling new pathways inside walls from up in the roof, or having to put conduit outside the wall which doesnt look nice.
If your powerpoint is not turning off, then either it or the internal switch mechanism is faulty. You should employ the services of a licensed electrician to assess the issue and have it fixed.
