    Project manager, builders, supplies, tools, relationships with suppliers.

    4. Foundation and anchoring to frame

    Slab, footings, blocks, skids, trailer.

    5. Framing

    Concrete, wood, bamboo, SIP, cob, rammed earth.

    6. Getting to lockup

    Sheathing, doors/windows/skylights, waterproofing, roofing.

    7. Plumbing, electrical, gas, heat

    Design, rough-in, fixtures, added safety considerations.

    8. Other building envelope parts sometimes needed

    9. Outfitting the interior
