The dating for many of the buildings presented in fabricae.org is based on the work of John James, and is meant on this site to serve as a starting point. It is one of the goals of this project to evaluate that chronologies of all of the buildings and present revised chronologies where necessary.

I have added the idea of the "project" as a way of separating work in buildings. In my mind, a "project" is a discrete section of work in a building that resulted from the one-time acquisition of funding. "Projects" are generally separated by at least a decade where no work was being done. It is my view that it would have been unwise to start a "project" that could not be finished and protected from the elements, and as such a "project" usually involved a wing or multiple wings of a building, from floor to roof. Rural churches, which could only secure small amounts of funding at irregular intervals, often were the result of many small projects, while the great churches, which benefitted from relatively consistent funding, may have involved only a few large projects.

Construction mentioned in letters
Whereas the choir and façade of his church had not been reconstructed, as might become the apostle of France, he decided to construct them more splendidly,… Our noble church, was lacking in front as in the center, and even the choir itself, we have undertaken to build…I was approached to renew the choir of the monastery, and through God's help the work began, and thereafter looked forward to the promise of great works.
