That being said he has his ASSIGNED chores that we decided based on the Chore Board.
We basically did a big chore board and wrote the names of us and the kids and we assigned the chores.
We are responsible for our own chores and sometimes we will help each other out, but if the chore doesn't get done then that person is responsible.
I am not sure how we would work in our family if one person stayed home full time, I am expecting they would take on the majority of the chores - 7 or 8 hours per days worth to balance the work.
For example, one person is responsible for the meals, one for the clean up afterwards, one for the kids bedtimes, one for bathtimes, one for finances and bills, one for house repairs, etc. We share laundry equally and we have a housecleaner for everything else.
If he is working at 11am that is 3 hours in the morning where he could be doing his chores.

I agree that he could do some of the stuff in the morning which would help you in the evening. Could he do stuff on his day/days off so you can have a break from the routine?
Also, have you thought about hiring a mother's helper to come in in the evening to play/help with the kids. Could you hire a housekeeper?
