Another psychological ploy is, if it is a simple project you can do in a few
hours, pick a 3-day holiday weekend, and do as much as you can Friday evening,
finish up Saturday morning at the latest, then you have 2-3 days for anyone who
gets excited to cool-off before any burocrat offices are open again that they
might bellyache to...

I'm sure others on TT would tell you the same thing: put all the
elements and antennas up at the same time. You'll have only one period of
shock to the neighbors' sense of the aesthetic, then it should all blow over.
But watching you add aluminium over a period of weeks might make them wonder
when will it all end?
And BTW: You might want to wait to connect up your coax cables for a few
days, too. I've had complaints about psychosomatic TVI in years past after I
erected simple antennas, only to be able to point out (somewhat gleefully) that
I'm not finished with the antennas yet (no cables) so the TVI couldn't possibly
be from my station. Never heard from those neighbors again.
