You can open all of these projects and configure the sequential build job list 
like you describe.

Object files are not placed anywhere by KDevelop itself. It just calls CMake 
or similar which you can configure to your likings to put the files wherever 
you want them to.

These questions somehow make me feel you don't even have setup the build 
toolchain for your project(s) yet - is that correct? I advise you to read up 
on CMake and get acquainted with it.
