Tentative Construction Schedule for 100K

in 100k project,Construction Updates

Brian from Manor Hill stopped by on Tuesday to discuss the construction plans, budget and time line in more detail. Everything is proceeding as he had planned and he is finishing up meetings with his key subs next week. He provided a rough draft copy of the construction schedule as he thinks it will go.

Basically, it is an 80 day or 12 week schedule from start to finish that should start in a few short weeks, depending on when the finished SIPs will be delivered. Right now the SIP manufacturer is looking at about a six week lead time to design, manufacture and deliver the SIPs to our site. We have about three weeks of excavation and foundation work to do in Brian’s schedule so that would put the groundbreaking at about three weeks from now.

Here are the major milestones in the construction time table:

  1. Groundbreaking – Sept 22nd or 29th
  2. SIP Delivery and Install -  Oct 20th or 27th
  3. Completed Homes / Ribbon Cutting Ceremony – Dec 12th or 19th
  4. Probable end of Federal Tax Credits – Dec 31st

We’re cutting it pretty close for those tax credits, but I feel confident that Brian will get us there in time. The SIP manufacturer, SureTight, is also intending to make the SIP delivery and install a week long training and SIP promotion event. We will be bringing contractors and framers from all around that want to participate and get hands-on experience with the technology. This is extremely valuable both for us and the contractors that participate as these types of trainings can cost as much as $1,000 and require a multi-day stay at the SIP manufacturer’s own site.

By next week, we should have the budget nailed down and the final schedule set.

If you enjoyed reading this post I can promise you'll love our new writing over at Postgreen Homes. Yeah, we know that's the same thing your favorite band said and their new album is nowhere near as good as their early stuff, but seriously, we are actually still getting better.

There also isn't much conversation to be had here . . . at least not with us. So come on over to the Postgreen Homes Blog and tell us what you think of our new(ish) digs and crazy ideas. We will be sure to tell you what we think of your opinion.

What’s the deal with “Probable end of Federal Tax Credits – Dec 31st”? I looked through some of the other recent posts and didn’t see anything about this.

As I understand it, the federal tax credits for Solar Thermal installations have not been renewed and will end on Dec 31st, 2008. If we don’t get the solar thermal systems installed by then, we will lose out on $2K on each home in tax credits…

Wow. Yet another thing to add to the list of blunders by our do nothing Government.

Hopefully you can stay on schedule and this won’t be an issue for you.

I would be interested in seeing your LEED-H preliminary checklist to see what points that you are going after.

moderns – The LEED-H checklist can be found on our documents page (which I took out of the main nav recently) or by following this direct link:

This is a bit outdated, but should give you the general idea of what we are shooting for. I’ll post an up to date copy shortly once we are able to have another team meeting.
