This book has been designed to help the student, tradesman, prospective builder, or contractor learn how to estimate materials for room additions or residential structures. Divided into fourteen sections, the book deals primarily with rules and estimating procedures needed to make a material list of various structural members found in wood and light gauge steel frame structures. The first section deals with the estimator and the knowledge he must possess to become successful in the construction business. Numerous illustrations have been included to assist the student to understand the written text and to emphasize construction terminology, plan reading, basic code requirements, and good construction practices. And, for the experienced tradesman, estimating rules, table, and procedures are an excellent reference and will help speed up his material take-off of concrete, rough framing lumber, finish materials, and hardware. Although every estimating situation the builder encounters cannot be handled in one book, the examples express a variety of situations which can help solve future estimating problems.
