Inputting Actual Project Start Dates and Durations Tutorial
Once your rehab project is underway, and your contractors begin to start construction, you can use the Actual/Projected columns to manage your project schedule.
In construction, things are rarely going to go according to plan, so the actual column is where you can input what’s actually happening on site, and see how it affects the overall project schedule.
On this project, our interior demolition stayed on schedule, but during demolition, we found that the house had been plumbed w/ galvanized piping & there were several spots that were leaking.
The decision was made to replace all of the galvanized piping w/ brand PEX piping throughout the house.
Unfortunately, this plumbing issue added additional two days to complete the plumbing rough-in.
You will notice, that the plumbing rough-in and drywall tasks are highlighted in red, which indicates that the task has gone beyond the planned schedule.
As you continue to update and build out the actual & projected schedule, you can see how project delays will impact the overall completion date.
On this project, we were able to make up time by working weekends and get the property on the market by the planned open house day.
