Time it Takes to Build

by Sean O'Hara, AIA, LEED AP on August 25, 2017

One of our favorite contractors sent me an email with some interesting facts from the United States Census Bureau for the year 2007.

A new, single family production home built in the western United States takes about 7.3 months to build. A contractor built custom home takes about 10.4 months to build. An owner built home takes about 11 months. These time frames for the western U.S. are all quite a bit longer than the overall averages for the United States. We have more challenging building conditions here than they do in say…Florida, or Texas.
