Build It - - READERS’ HOMES -

EN­SURE YOU stick to your project plan. Chase con­trac­tors to en­sure that ev­ery­thing re­mains on sched­ule and you stay in con­trol of tim­ings.

UN­DER­TAKE DAILY or weekly meet­ings as re­quired to en­sure that ev­ery­one’s un­der­stand­ings are aligned. This will elim­i­nate pos­si­bil­i­ties of crossed wires that could lead to set­backs.

AD­DRESS SNAG­GING as you go. Cor­rect­ing de­fects as they arise will limit the amount of changes you have to make at the end of the build process.

IF YOU CAN, move out and store fur­ni­ture while works are be­ing car­ried out. This was a les­son for us for the fu­ture. It’s very dif­fi­cult to live in a prop­erty while a construction project is un­der­way.
