Project Status

The following drawing illustrates my progress to date on the project.  The following legend explains the colour coding:

White:    Not started yet
Cyan:     Partially complete
Blue:      Completed, but not inspected
Red:       Inspected, and finished.


 
 

Here is my builder log.  I even tell you when I screwed something up.

NOTE: Once I got into the final few weeks of building, I never got around to updating the numbers in the log below. I still have them in a hand written form (14 April 2006), but haven't gotten the gumption up to update the table. I will, one of these days, but for now the total time was 1650 hours (with another 200 year later for painting).
