      That'll be up to your architect, the beam support posts may be able to be hidden in walls, otherwise not sure if it's spec'd as a load-bearing wall etc etc.

      Oh I hear that lol. I'm in the same stage as you designing mine and that's the hardest part. However, you don't want to live in this house for 10+ years and always hating your pantry regretting it.

      Found a few things out.

      I have all Schlage locks in my house, keyed alike. The Kwikset 910 smart lock I bought (since it's a competing brand) cannot be keyed alike to my Schlage key, nor can a...

      Link you sent is $30/bulb

      The 1 bulb I bought to play with was only $15, cheapest LED bulb I could find. Smart and dimmable. http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00NOL16K0?

      I have seen a few things claiming they link to Apple TV. Currently I don't have that and don't plan to, and a $100 Hub isn't a big deal IMO

      As far as brands, that was my though also - stick with...

      Those have circuit boards that can go bad. Not too much $ but you get the entire board. Sounds like a gremlin so that would be my guess
