A rare Home Nertworking opportunity

Ok......I've got a rare opportunity to setup a home network from scratch.
My house had a terrible fire in it, and due to all the damage, the roof, ceiling and walls will all be replaced with new materials. The result will be bare studs before construction is started again. question is this:
If one of you were in my shoes, how would you set up your home for Internet?
I know there's wireless repeaters available to boost a signal from a wireless router. Are these a good way to go?
I could have Ethernet ports installed in every room, would this be a better way to go?
My house is 1500 sq.ft., is good ol coax the way to go?
I'd love to kinda future proof my house so I can add new technologies down the road with minimal hassle.
