A House is Best Built in Small Bites

There is a saying that an Elephant is best eaten in small bites. I don’t want to eat an elephant and who would anyways? But I guess the same thing could be said about a house. It’s best built in small bites.
While it’s hard to get excited about pipes and returns, both are necessary components of a house. Pipes hidden behind walls carry away the water never to be seen (leaks not included) but somehow they magically work. Every day. And the returns carry the spent air (is there such a thing?) back to the furnace for reheating or the air conditioning for re-cooling. And while the pictures only show what’s been installed so far, it won’t be long before they are all connected and working as a system. Small bites.
Anyone have any idea when this heat and humidity will end? 10 at night and it’s 86 degrees and humidity is at 84%. Enough already.
