Timeline with stacked bar or similar



I've been looking everywhere for something that doesn't seem that unusual or complicated but I can't get a visual to show anything close. I'd like a stacked bar graph with dates along the axis, and data in days duration. I'd then like to label the phases on the bar with the phase names from my data table.


In excel this takes 5 minutes but obviously isn't slicable - I just can't figure it out in BI. Here is a screenshot of the excel recreation for clarity though:



I'd be happy with a solution that uses something other than the stacked bar as long as I end up with something that looks roughly like this. Thanks for any help.
