By the way, Houston's rebuild began in December 2010 and they didn't have a winning season until 2015. Not that it (or any other team's timeline) should have any bearing on our evaluation of the Sox rebuild.
Like the Sox, the Astros had several bad years prior to their rebuild.
Luhnow was hired in December 2011. They were terrible in 2012, 2013, and 2014 (improving 19 games from 2013). They made the playoffs in 2015.
The Sox started rebuilding in July 2016. On the Astros timetable, the Sox would suck in 2017, 2018 and 2019, and make the playoffs in 2020. And that even gives the Sox an extra 1/2 year or so over the Astros.
