Our week in review: Project management documents and workspace set up.
I continued to flesh out and refine our building time line document. This involves a written overview of our project from start to finish broken down into tasks, with each task assigned an hourly estimate for completion. This information is laid out in a spreadsheet based chart which will live on our workshop wall. We currently have 150 general tasks written in the order of which they need to be done. This chart will help us manage our Class Globe 5.80 project in a variety of ways including time management, task allocation and cashflow to name a few.
I also continued to worked on compiling a detailed list of all hardware, equipment, fastenings and materials etc to build and fit out boat #71.
We are still deep into converting our recording and music teaching studio of 8 years into a boat building space. Apart from basic demolition, building and cleaning work, we also rejuvenated five 1.2m long fluorescent lights that had been found in a bin and passed on to us. We cleaned and tested them and decided on a lighting scheme for our building space. These will make a great addition to our little workshop. Still a bit of work here including finding a new place for the piano!
See our Project Hours blog post for an up to date overview of our build hours.
