Help needed | Multi-room audio setup

Finishing my basement and planning to install a theater plus mult-room audio. However, things get beyond my expertise when incorporating amps, pre-amps and selecting between fixed-/variable-line, pass-through, etc.

Planned setup will be:
- Theater = 7.1
- Room 2 = 4 speakers
- Room 3 = 1-2 speakers
- Outside patio = 1-2 speakers
- All speakers wired

Questions for the community:
1) Are there any good diagrams out there which show how to wire a setup like this and which settings to use?
2) What are the preferred apps to control everything? Something like Control 4 but DIY?

Thanks!

I would call Crutchfield and talk to one of their experts in this particular area.

Free advice.
