Three way switches in three gang box

Please help. I am trying to finish up the wiring of my first home that I am building. I have a three gang box that will hold three different three way switches. There are 3 14-3 wires going from this box to another box for the switches. There is a 14-2 coming in to the box to supply power to all light switches. There is also a power supply from the switch to one set of recessed lights in the same three gang box. I am totally lost on how to wire this box so everything works correctly. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Are you expecting this box to have:

Two 3-ways (for other lights) and 1 SPST switch to the cans?

I'm a little confused..... did you do the wiring yourself ?
If not.... and you had an electrician do it....the connections should have all been made up at that time. Basically ready for rough in inspection .

Did you rough in using the power in, xx-3 switch to switch and then power out method? It sounds like one may be wired as a deadend 3 way.
