Key Points for A Successful Business Build Event

One House Build

DAY 1

Cut

The cut will be at a time you pick.

We will arrive approximately 2 hours before cut to set up.

You will need 20-25 people for the cut.

You will need 4 people that know how to use miter saws. Everyone else will be “toters” – they will carry the cut wood to the pick line.

The cut takes about 2-2 1/2 hours.

Team Leaders Meeting – Team Leaders are extremely important for a successful build.

You will need 15 team leaders for a build. Team Leaders should be able to read a simple blueprint, use a hammer and measuring tape, and be able to instruct others.  Team Leaders must attend the Team Leaders training. This meeting should be after the cut.  The meeting will take about 1 hour.

DAY 2

Instructions

A time to explain what we will be doing for the day.  Instructions for basic wall building and the goals for the day.  Also who will be receiving the home and how it will change their lives.

 Build

You will need 80-120 people for this build. Children are welcome! There are many jobs they can help with!  There will be about 15 building stations – you need 5-8 people at each station.

 

OSB Station

You will need 3 people that know how to use nail guns at the OSB station. (This station is separate from the build stations.)  You will also need another 5-7 people that will help carry the walls to standing area.
