Our week in review: Project management documents and workspace set up.
I added a three more tasks to the building time line schedule this week bringing the total to 153 general tasks so far. I am almost at the point where I will start looking at breaking some of the bigger tasks down into their smaller steps and start listing specific material requirements associated with those tasks. A good example is task #20 - Machine all solid timber for hull and deck. This is the timber used for the chines, stringers, cleats and deck beams. Apart from the fact that I will have to order the timber and have it ready for machining (which is task #18), I will also have to do a bit of maintenance on some machinery. Following is the note attached to task #20 in my spreadsheet.
I also continued to work on my fit out document. This is shaping up to be 200 plus pages of gear, parts, and items with details about brand, weight, purpose, fasteners and eventually cost. This is a big job that I feel is important to do at the front end of the build.
I finally got power hooked up to the new work space. We had disconnected it while doing some of the demolition. We wired up the new lights in a way that makes them mobile. Because our build space is small there will be a need to adjust lighting after the initial build for jobs like fairing and painting.
