Master Building Schedule 


This house building schedule will get you through the process, step-by-step.

It is offered only as a guideline to help planning in the building of your house.  It is based upon the schedule that I use.

No assurance is offered that this list contains every task you will have to perform to successfully complete your house.

Every house building project is unique, with its own specific tasks.  Building code requirements differ by states, counties, and cities.
