Forum Title: Occupied Home Remodel Timeframes And Strategy
I never feel like I'm cruising through remodels but my subs tell me I knock them out at a good rate. I get about 100 man-hours per week into a kitchen or bath including subs, and 150 or so for larger projects. I feel like the clients almost demand this, but my new tile sub, who also is a GC (but just an amazing tile setter so he does sub work) has a different approach. He's the same small size operation, but overlaps 5-8 jobs and takes twice as long on all of them. His work is all magazine worthy, maybe a little different league than me, which helps. In a lot of ways this would be easier. I sometimes do things out of order to hit the completion date the soonest. Other times me and my employee are stuck waiting on a sub, basically not making money. But when people are washing dishes in the bathroom sink and have a fridge in the living room, they can get impatient. Same applies if they are paying $2500 a month to rent a place while I do a major remodel. What do you find works best? I haven't been doing this as long as many of you, and I'm first generation, no mentor in all this.
