Note: In addition to the hours logged as worked, there is at least an equal amount of time doing research, purchasing, planning, updating the website, and generally thinking about some aspect of the build. Time logged does not include breaks, meals, etc.

Take a look at the cost planner we made.

Here are some other time logs by RV-10 builders that we used to figure out about how long we might expect certain areas of the build to go. This helped with timing of when kits and parts needed to be ordered and also give us a general time frame to set goals with.
