House log - 18/06/21

Today I went to the house to see the progress of the third session done by the painter (after he went home for the weekend).

He did some progress from few days ago. For consistency, I will use the same reference as in the previous post:

  1. Smoothing out the joints
  2. A cover layer (maybe to increase adherence?)
  3. The final layer

Completion rate

The result for this week's work looks like this:



Now we have two painting sessions complete. The chart below illustrates this progress:


I've put it also in a different form to see clearer how the different wall states evolved:


The orange color represents the finished walls. If the bar is orange, then the walls are finished :)

Disclaimer: There are some errors because some walls are smaller, some are larger in surface (surface-wise, the completion percentage is less than 15% simply because the biggest walls are not finished).

More metrics

The painter brought another colleague from Aachen. They worked 4 days to get to the current state.

Considering they worked approximately 10h/day to get to the current state, it would take him alone

  • around 6 working days at the same rhythm of work (for one painter) or
  • about 8 days at an 8-hour work day.

As before, these are ballpark estimates and there are a lot of factors influencing the progress (e.g. materials' availability, work conditions ...).
