House #48 is a true product of the 21st century.  This house has stepped into a new level of service for its homeowners.  The electrical construction and maintenance electrician students joined forces with the computer and network technician students to add a professional quality phone, data, and communication networking system, as well as a centralized cabling and termination center for video.  This level of network and patch panel design is state-of-the-art.  This home is only the second in the area to have this quality and level of networking.
