Ellis Household Home Improvement Project
This project will address the severe design flaws and the renovation needed to make the Ellis Household a more comfortable living place. The severe lack of quality materials has shown through in our first couple months here and we need to change that. The house needs to be renovated, but to save money we will only be working on the first floor.
A second project consisting of the second floor and basement will come at a later date. Doing this home improvement also gives us the opportunity to increase the value of our home. Overview of Deliverables:
Renovate the floors.
Renovate the walls
Renovate/Redesign the kitchen
Redesign the office.
Renovate the ceilings Specific Project Objectives and Success Criteria: A. The project goal is to completely renovate and redesign the first floor of our new house within one month from the start date of the project.
The Project Manager, Keith Ellis, will be accountable for giving the sponsor (his wife) Ashley Ellis with the scheduling status on a day to day occurrence.
The remodeling of the first floor of the Ellis Household will be done on an estimated funding of $20,000 dollars.

Signatures—The following people agree that the above information is accurate:
The deliverables of my project are the five level 2 tasks: renovate the loors, renovate the walls, renovate/redesign the kitchen, redesign the office, and renovate the ceilings. The tasks of these deliverables are the level 3 while the sub tasks are the level 4 in the WBS. I feel decomposed the WBS for my Home Improvement project just fine because each sub task told the sponsors, project team, stakeholders, etc. exactly what was going to be done in the project. It left no doubt what was going to happen. And like I just said, decomposing the project so in depth allows for the most control because it allows you as the project manager to know what is going on in your project.
