Home Building Manual

When building a house or a home extension, ideally, the weather will be perfect, all the materials will arrive on time and intact, and the trades people will be ready and on time. Unfortunately this is a very rare occasion. The weather could take a turn for the worse, building materials could be late or items missing, the electrician could be held up at another job, or any number of things could go wrong. The point is that building a house or home extension can be a chaotic event.

So, would a home building manual (if there is such a thing) be of any help? Would a step by step guide to building a house or home extension and some idea what each step involves be a great idea.  While certain things must happen before others, like the foundation goes in before the roof, other things may be completed in a different order without creating many problems. In other words any home building manual is to be treated as a general guide to construction.

Any home building manual should be relevant for the individual that either wants to build their own home, become a better homebuilding construction professional, wants a quality built home, or wants to know more about the homebuilding process. It should cover things like chronological schedules, critical path timelines, contractor job scopes and completion checklists, labour and material budgets, contract negotiation, job site management, and so much more.
