Earth Excavation: The cost
of the ditch 100' in length, 10' deep,
and 20'
wide assumes that a crew of 34 men work for six weeks.
If soil is heavy
clay, time will be doubled.
Stone Constructions:
Fortresslike stone constructions take about one
week per 10' cubic section. Adding
50% to the expenditure will double the
rate of construction, but to triple
the rate of construction, expenditure must
be increased to 250% of the base
cost  the maximum increase in construction
rate. Normal stone buildings as
shown on the cost list, require
four months to construct, including
interior work. All times assume building
materials are on hand. Quarry work
and transportation, if any, are additional
cost and time factors. Architect
costs are also additional.
Wood Constructions: Wooden buildings
take approximately onehalf the
time it takes to construct similar buildings with stone.
Wooden hoardings,
for example, can be built at the rate of a 10' section
per day.
[Estimates] : There are so many variable factors
involved that the times given for completion
of any given construction must be vague. If you do not
wish to
spend undue amounts of time calculating, it is suggested
that you use the
following rough estimates for construction time:
Times assume that an architect has prepared plans in advance,
and that
normal costs are expended in construction. If additional
monies are spent,
time is reduced as noted for stone constructions. With
respect to walling
urban areas, citizens who willingly labor to SPEED construction
will reduce
time by 50%.
<>typically have two 4'wide merlons and two embrasures
3'wide.
