How I’m saving time

  • Building small
  • Building open structures
  • Building on flat, open land
  • Planning well in advance enables me to do work in my head while at unrelated and less enjoybale tasks
  • Being open to different possibilities
  • Doing the work that I can do efficiently, delegating the rest
  • Developing an exclusion list of features that can wait until after the occupancy. Things such as houzz-worthy decorating, trim carpentry and built in cabinetry, and sub-critical appliance installations can all wait until the pressure is off.
  • Drawing detailed sketches, cut-lists, supply-lists, so that jobs aren’t interrupted with back-tracking and trips to the store.
