Our little family wished you (and your family / partner) a witty 2018.
We do this traditionally by video. (I think after 10 years I can say it’s a tradition)
We moved at the end of November 2017 to the minimum viable version of our new house.
The MVH 1 contained features: heating and a place to sleep. (In our previous house our heating system died somewhere around February 2017)
After a week, feature library and walking desk went live.
A month after we moved, feature kitchen was delivered. For us this meant that MVH 2 was feature complete. We hope that this week, feature shower and storage room will be usable. (MVH3)
After which we consider ourselves really moved as we now use both houses)
Features telephone and television should be delivered at the end of the month. Due to a misunderstanding of work for this feature by one supplier, the delivery of this feature was postponed for a month.
Feature: cell phone coverage in our house, has a high priority although we did not find a suitable system that we can afford, yet.
Features ventilation, solar roof, solar water heater have been postponed by our supplier for unknown reasons.
Other features like bell, music, ramp, garage, attic, training room, full bathroom, did not get a priority yet.
I know at many levels building a house and building software shouldn’t be compared.
Still I learned a lot about delivering with multiple -sometimes competing- teams these last two years. Things I hope to share with you in the coming years.
