11 am: Mark/Swat Unit 3: DESIGN CHANGE 

  • Design Change: for now timeline changed to 2 weeks. Completion date: Jan 24, 2019. First guest arrives that weekend. 
  • Everything in the plan continues except for half bathroom and wall for bedroom 2 will come later
  • Reason: Speed of implementation - get a “win” under our belt and start next unit. This way income is produced, and builds momentum.
  • Reason 2: by adding the bedroom and bath it will add 1-2 weeks to our timeline (close off 1 window, stucco, exterior paint, plumbing for bath) The walls will be setup perfectly ready for new half bath and bedroom to be added.
  • Reason 3: wait for city permit for 2nd bedroom and bath.

 

UNIT 2: lock change, new key with master key set, labeled “2”. 1/14/19 9 am  UNIT 3 key given to Pepe for early morning entry  UNIT 1: key changed, now on master key set.

Project Problem

1) investor problem: property loses money, timeline delays guest payment to our bank account, mortgage late fees and foreclosure, contractors want twice the money and do half the work, terrible work ethic, and leaves apartment unfinished. Investor loses property. 

Investor vision: Airbnb guest stays in property tonight, leaves a 5-star review with no complaints. Property makes $1500/mo net per unit by finishing ahead of timeline and saves 10% on budget. Pays mortgage 7 days early. 

2) Customer problem: unit is dirty, bed bugs, bad location, smells bad, feels unsafe, no parking, beds not comfortable, water/electric doesn’t work, uninspiring theme, 100-145 per night range, bad design, bad smells, unclean

Customer vision: pushes button > books a 5-star Airbnb > walks to beach > wakes up in AIRBNB realizing unique experience with perfect clean beds > unique bathroom/kitchen design they never forget > they wish they live there when they leave review. 

3) Contractor problem: late pay, no tools, no gas money, no food money, indecisive, no materials, unclear vision/no plan, late $payout, no skills, no truck, no tools, delay delay delay

Contractor vision:

Gets paid when he expects to get paid, able to now pay for food, rent, and utilities. Arrives on time, has tools, has materials ready, finishes ahead of time. He nows exactly what is his his next task. Is under pressure to finish otherwise he will not get paid. 

 

Why timelines fail?

Indecisiveness, low iq, low standards, no skill set, unclear directions, go with the flow mentality, surprises in property delay timeline, unclear plan, working on low value tasks first (painting, filling wall holes) and doing tough high-value things last (plumbing, bathroom, and kitchen). 

How timeliness succeed: everyone has materials and know what they’re doing NOW, TOMORROW, and is UNDER PRESSURE to FINISH or they lose everything. 

 

Purpose of page

  2. Visual Journal: Capture work being done.
