Does anyone know if there are any good resources or tips for doing your own. Prehaps someone with some decent knowledge could do a wiki page?
Its worth being aware that CAT5e etc and others are not only used for ethernet. Some of the remote VoIP and Video kit I've seen can pump 240v down them. (Hopefully low amperage)
Here is one audio thingy as an example: Cambridge Audio (only cause I want it in my house)
Edit: Upon rereading, I'm not 100% sure if the PSU is at the other end, so it might not be as high as 240v, I can't recall from memory.

This seems to state 50V DC is wire max at fairly small current values. That's sounds a bit more like it, although I'm willing to bet there are a few products willing to ignore the wattage limits and cook your cables.
I think some of the insurance worries are more for the fact you're drilling through walls with water/gas pipes and electrical power cables than any concerns over the cabling itself.
@SimpleSi: I'm guessing you saw the 240v, I've no idea where I got that from. It looked like rubbish the minute I'd written it.
For those that do your own cabling, what do you do about earth bonding on your comms cabinets?
We had a contractor do ours but me and my right hand man have done the odd cabling lately.
