This will be determined by how long it takes me to gather the information needed from you. Creating the basic site is a very quick turnaround depending on the amount of pages and sections, but I want to strive for great first time quality so communication will be key during the process.

Great question. As you will be the owner of the domain and host, you will have the power to customize everything. But what I will do is create a minimum of 2 user accounts:
The first one will be an admin account. The admin account will have full control of every aspect of the website.
The second account will be an editor account. The editor account will allow you to go in and change content of the site. Such as wording, media and link redirects.
Part of my delivery will be some sort of tutorial of how to customize your website.
