Follow directions, read the following thoroughly and think the plan through.
You are building your own home. You are preparing a project plan for the build.
- Today is day 1, it is 1-April-2017.
- You have been working with an architect and he has two weeks of work to finalize the plans that will go to the other contractors.
- The contractors will only work 8 hours per day and will not work weekends. 29-May, 4-July, 4-September, 9-October and 23-November are all non-working holidays.
- The day after receiving the plans from the architect, the surveyors of your property will take 5 days for their work and will supply their specifications to the site preparation team on their last day.
- The site preparation team expects to take 10 days to properly grade the property and have it ready for the concrete contractor to prepare the foundation of the house.
- The concrete contractor estimates 3 days to pour the foundation. The concrete requires 5 days to dry (cure). Once cured, they require 1 final day to finish the foundation and install the sill plate.
- The framing contractorâ€™s materials will arrive on the same day that the concrete contractor is working on the sill plate.
- Once the sill plate is installed, the carpenters immediately start working and expect 3 weeks for the walls and the roof to be framed.
- The roofer and the brick contractors work at the same time once this is complete. The roof is completed in 4 days. The brick contractor completes their first phase three weeks.
- The plumber begins his work the day after the roofers finish their work and he completes his first phase in 2 weeks.
- The electrician begins the day after the plumber is finished for their first phase of their work. It takes them 2 weeks.
- The heating and air conditioning contractor starts their work on the first day of the electricianâ€™s second week. They take 9 days.
- Windows and doors are installed the day after the heating and air conditioning contractor finishes their work. Their work takes 3 days.
- Following the doors and windows being installed, the interior carpenters begin their work and will take 3 weeks to complete the interior walls. They take another week to building the kitchen.
- The plumber and the electrician work at the same time for one more week, once the kitchen is complete.
- At the same time that the plumber and electrician start their work, the dry wall contractor finishes the interior walls in 2 weeksâ€™ time. The brick contractor starts the completion of the outside of the house, the steps to the front and back door, and walk ways at the same time and takes just 1 week.
- The interior of the house is painted once the electrician and plumber are completed and it takes the painters 3 days.
- Kitchen cabinets, molding and other interior finishing work is completed in 2 weeks once the painters are complete.
- After the cabinets, molding and finishing is complete, appliances are installed. This takes 2 days.
