Yeah, somehow I think I'd have the same problem with a too much and work not enough.  Must be a "Randy" thing.

I keep a excel spread sheet to keep track of my time and totals. I now have 1167 hours invested. In two weeks it will be 2 years to the day when I started. I've worked almost every weekend 4 to 10 hrs a day, that's counting reading the plans, viewing the CH750 photo guide while building, and some times watching the build video to make something more clear. My airplane is almost ready to fly. I just removed the wings to transport to the airport , so I am pretty much done with it. I have built almost all of the plane by myself except where I needed help to flip the wing or move heavy parts around. A GOOD helper would probably cut that time in half because to get up to get a tool or part takes half the time away from working. Maybe not, I would probably talk too much and not work so much.

I just ran through all of your photos.  How long have you been building now?  Any idea of how many hours you've "invested"?  Are you following a build timetable or working on it just when you have the time?  My wife seems to think it's going to be years to build one, but I hope to have it done pretty quickly.  Suggestions?
