Was denied putting in my own path to pull cable

I remember reading back a suggestion from another blogger, Sgt. Rich I believe, to run a blue flex conduit from the basement to the attic before drywalling so that you have a path to pull wiring in the future.  I thought that was an awesome suggestion.   My thought was to pull ethernet cable from the computer upstairs down to the computer in the basement.  Asked my PM today and was denied.  Got the company line "Ah man, I wish I could but can't because of inspection and liability issues blah blah blah."  I bet RH would be more than happy to charge me $500 to do it for me lol.  Ah well, a bit of a bummer, but not the end of the word.

I have 6 more days until the big move out of my current house...and the dreaded 6-7 weeks living with the in-laws until the house is finished.


  1. Bummer! It seems like every PM handles this request differently. Ours had our electricians do it.

    Good luck with the move!

  2. That stinks. I have read several blogs where they were able to do this with their PM's approval.

  3. I am going to record this for my pre construction list request. But my PM seems to resemble your PM. He doesn't want to do anything different. I already see that I am going to have to negotiate several side deals ie painters, underground sprinkler system, splitting ceiling rough in etc.
