Project Plan, Week 1
After the first 7 days, I think we are slightly ahead on the project. Not enough to move the dates, but enough that we are on-target. Having 6 people demo the kitchen really put us in front of the demo work, and we were able to get the Electrician and Plumber started a little early.
Shamefully, I admit to allowing some scope creep this early. The dreaded words "While we're at it..." were followed by "lets add a utility sink in the basement." This did make sense and we have wanted to add a sink in the basement for a while, so that's adding a day and $800 to the plumbing budget, but I know I will be grateful when we can rinse grimy hands or paint brushes in the basement rather than near the precious new countertops.
