Default RV-14 Fuselage - can be built by one person?

Is it possible for one person to build an RV-14 Fuselage kit single-handedly? Has anybody out there done it? If not, what about the QuickBuild kit?

I am a loner. An introvert. Somewhat anti-social. Live alone. No wife, ex, kids, girlfriend, etc. Very independent minded. Like to think I am self-sufficient. Like to do everything myself. Don't like asking for help from anybody for anything. That's just a quirk of my personality.

So far, I have been successful in building the RV-14 Empennage and Wing Kits single-handedly (although I have had to be a little creative at times).

The Wings are nearly done - I will need to place an order for the Fuselage kit very soon. I need to decide whether to order the SlowBuild or the QuickBuild kit. I prefer to go with the SlowBuild kit. However, if that can not be built single-handedly and if the QuickBuild kit can, that might be a good enough reason for me to go with the QuickBuild kit.

I'm not looking for advice about how to achieve a personality makeover, but I would be very interested in hearing from others regarding whether or not the Fuselage kit can be built single-handedly. I am hoping that somebody out there will say "yes it is possible - I have done it!".

ps - I am of average height with average length arms, and pretty fit for an old retired guy.
