baking in the evenings

i would like to increase the number of times i bake in a week.  this means baking in the evenings of days that i work.

anyone have suggestions on when to make preferments, refridgerating them, etc. and making it work? 

specifically, hamelman's pain rustique. 

i can make the preferment any time the day before.  and i get home from work at 530.

Maybe you could try mixing the preferments in the morning and making the bread in the evening when you get home from work?
