Sagewood Homes would like to inform each customer
about the building schedule of a home.  Scroll down this
page to see an example of a typical construction schedule
for a custom home.  The schedule includes most, but not
all, of the activities involved in the process of building a
new home.

The actual schedule of completion for your project will vary
based upon many factors including, but not limited to size
and degree of difficulty of the structure, site and weather
conditions, material and contractor availability, crew sizes,
effective scheduling and communication, and perhaps most
significantly, the number, and complexity of the changes you
will make to the original contract.
