Today I intend to start pricing up materials for this project. I've spoken to Mario, and we will have a chat later on in the day about materials.
My dad works as a Planer in construction, so I asked him for some advice on pricing up as its something that he's very involved in.
- Get different products from different providers
- For building materials,
- For general materials
- When working within a budget, make sure that you set some money aside as a contingency for unexpected things
- Use a spreadsheet to easily compare material costs, with the materials needed along the left hand side, and the total cost at the end of the columns to compare. I would be using Excel to do this.
