This was a tough one because there was a lot of starting & stopping but I would guess if you include the time taken to pick up the lumber, all the iced coffee breaks, and then the time it took to move this beast into position I bet you have 6-8 hours in this project. Probably less if you aren’t as easily distracted as I was by the garden and other chores around the house…
