Does anyone have experience with any homebuilding-specific scheduling software?  I have seen the following scheduling programs:

turtlesoft.com

ezhomebuild.com

virtualboss.net

Thanks,
Kevin

Hi  there!   I too have looked at those types of programs and debated, would they help reduce delays? keep on schedule? minimize risk? etc.. 

IMHO they're not going to get the subs & materials to show up on time - only you with constant contact will get that done.  I think a cell phone w/voicemail is a necessity.  

I've chosen to use the FREE Excel worksheet from this site as a basis for my schedule. It is a simple version of what you're looking at already. It can easily be customized to your scheduled tasks. I figured- if I have to punch in all the data anyway - why pay $$$ for a fancy template when a simple one will do nicely.

The time line can be scary for those of us who aren't in construction by trade, but my method is to average on the high side the estimated time from my 3-5 bids. And be flexible but firm with the subs.

Good luck.

If you have access to Microsoft Project they also have on their website a residential program for managing your homebuilding project.  Good luck.

Excellent post, BTW, this advice was exactly what I was looking for.

Can you provide a link to the MS project files? I couldn't find them.

Thank you.

Thanks for the link, I thought they meant it was located on this site.  Any opinions of this?  Has anyone taken this and modified it?  I'd like to take a look.

 

Thanks.

I don't really have any experience, but I know that Contractor Business Solutions Northwest provide a solution for that. Their corporate site is: cbsnw.com. You can visit there and see if any of their packages fit your requirements or not... or you can ask them by phone for a solution. They have expertise on job costing software and project management software.
