So Here are the hours I spent building this robot. The time you take will likely be less because I've already done much of the designing for you, and all you have to do is throw together the pieces (figuratively, not literally of course =P) while following my instructions.

Contemplation and Research: 35 Hours
Designing: 20 Hours
Mechanical Assembly: 10 Hours
Electrical assembly: 9 hours (due to change)
