Be sure when you tile that the tiles do not overhang into the box opening.
A GFI needs the full box clearance to fit.

If it's flat paint there shouldn't be any issues, if it's a latex enamel I'd at least scuff sand it with 80 grit. My backsplash is applied over paint as was most of the houses I worked on. I don't...

It could be a problem, depending on the type of thinset you plan to use. It would be a good idea to sand and prime the painted walls if the paint is glossy at all. And Versabond was recommended to me...

If I can remember correct from cabling training Ethernet was good for 300' before a booster was needed. Ethernet cable is specifically designed for the frequencies. The twists per inch on each pair...

We'd need to know what type of wire that is.

Does not need to be first, but any outlets before it are not protected, any outlets after are.

For a gate I'd be going much larger, at least a 6x6!

You get more support going deeper, assuming a 40" post, I'd go 24" deep!
