How long did it take Noah to build the ark?

Noah, building and preaching for 120 years.

Thanks for your question. 

Here are some passges which deal with Noah and the ark:  Genesis chapters 6-8; Matthew 24:37,38; Luke 17:26,27; 1 Peter 3:20;  2 Peter 2:5.
In Genesis 6:3, the 120 years mentioned does not refer to a person's average lifespan but rather God was saying: "Man's days are numbered.  He has 120 years left until the flood comes."
God bless,
