Build Your Own House: The Schedule

The written construction schedule is a very important tool for anyone thinking of building their own home. In this video we introduce the schedule and discuss in detail how it should be used. We also talk about the potential delays, the importance of daily quality checks, and review typical build times for a new home.

Checkout the Armchair Builder E-Store for the New Home Schedule resource for building your new home.  In our "Build Your Own Home Digital Resource Kit" we include an Excel spreadsheet schedule that has all the formulas needed to automate the scheduling of a new home. With this scheduling resource, the person managing the home build just types in the start date, and the schedule automatically runs out to show when the house will ideally be completed.
