No defined purpose, just a location I thought you might want a cable. Could just as easily be on the wall common with the bathroom. In the living room those two walls are locations someone could put a tv. Nothing in the diagram I made should be taken too literally.
If you're going to wire a house, you really need to buy or make something to properly de-spool / uncoil wire as you pull it. Saves so much time and makes it look so much cleaner. A helper is also a big time saver.Where would you put access points? I was thinking pantry (2nd floor) and wet bar (in bonus room first floor). I have a couple ubiquity unifi lite AP’s. Wet bar will be in corner of bonus room adjacent to garage. This is pantry’s new location. Already have a cat 6 run to each.

Can you post a picture of some of the network wiring you've done so far so (label or describe what's what)? That way we can offer some feedback before you get too far.
Residential coaxial cable is rated at a 75 ohm impedance, same as TV and cable box in/out impedance. You want to use it for all 75 ohm devices. When you match the output impedance of a device to the same input impedance of another device, using the correct cable impedance, you get Maximum power transfer. Meaning good design and low loss. Likewise for enet cable for all your IP appliances, except different impedance.Again, coaxial is strictly for cable tv like directv dish etc correct? That’s the only reason I would need coaxial?
Sure, it could be more expensive than Ethrrnet cable, but my comment was only intended relative to quality and price of other RG6-type coax.That cable is 2x as expensive as the cat 6. I just checked my second tv box (wireless) and it doesn’t even have a coax in plug.

I think the location closer to the house will be better. Exact placement (mainly height) is a little tricky, balancing what looks right, potential for birds nests, and ir reflection off the beam.Picture one looking from door towards 2 possible camera locations.
Seems like a reasonable location. Have you considered a camera around the corner tucked up by the beam on the covered porch?Also, how do you like a camera here for the door leading to/from kitchen - deck?
Recessed may be better for the camera than wall mounted fixtures. Ultimately it's a matter of what you like the look and function of.Also, would you do recessed lights on the tongue and groove area on main entrance? I can wire for them tomorrow before they finish installing it. Planned on having 2 lights on each side of front door. Not sure how the recessed would look there, or if they would serve any purpose. Can always wire it and decide later.
