|Lets say there is this building. And it is going to be the future home of a law firm. i haven't scoped out the building yet but from what i heard is that it is going to be two offices. they want a network and all that good stuff. i'm pretty sure there is going to be fax machines and phones and so on. where do i start and how do i get started. i remember bits and pieces from what i learned from school and i have seen how a network looks like but i soooooo do not know if i can do it? do i even need to do software and break down walls and so on???? i so need to come back down to earth...help!!! how do i lay out the cables...and so on???|

You do not say where you are located but it sounds like you will need the services of a professional consultant for the design.
Knowing a block diagram for a network will not be as valuable in designing a communications cable plant.
The arch or electrical contractor involved in the job may be able to give you local references or you can contact BICSI for a list of RCDDs (Registered Communications Distribution Designer)s in your area who can assist you with the design.
BICSI can be found on the web at: http://www.bicsi.org
