Construction Schedule

(Brendan)

Now that we've started construction, I thought I'd post the updated construction schedule from our builder. The balance of everything will be done for us to move in at the end of January '10. There are a couple things that are going to have to wait for warmer weather next year: the driveway and exterior painting (May).

I updated the "Construction Schedule" link under "Other Info" in the sidebar so that it points to this post so that anyone can check it easily throughout the construction process.

Do all of the "by client" notes signify that you will be doing those tasks yourself?

Yep!

Wow. Full painting and staining of the interior? I hope you have a lot of help! :-)

Yes, I'll be taking a lot of time off of work, but it's worth it. Doing some of the work yourself saves thousands of dollars. As a general rule, the cost of any construction activity is 70 percent labor. So if you can do it yourself that's a lot of money that isn't sunk into your mortgage.

Well, let me know if you need any help. I'm sure I'll have my hands full with the new baby but I might have half a day free here and there on the weekends.

Thanks for the offer, I might take you up on it!
