Have you considered a WIRELESS network??!
Picture those days where you can take your laptop out onto the deck w/a cold beer and impress the neighbors! (Assuming, that is, that you have a laptop ...)
These days, it's less disruptive to run wires for a network when for a couple of 100 $$$s, you can forgo the wiring!
As for how to solve your problem, can you run your wiring UNDER or OVER the wall? Your only other alternative is to partially remove a sheet, or the entire sheet.
If I were you, but I'm not, but if I were, I'd go wireless. My best to ya and hope this helps.
