  3. I'm glad they can explain this on a spreadsheet. I have never been able to understand general construction. There's just so much going on, I never know where to start.

  4. This is an amazing way to organize construction costs and compare them to other estimates. The trick to comparing prices is making sure they're actually comparable. That sounds fairly intuitive, but costs and profits are distributed throughout the estimate in different ways by different contractors. I can see the value in having an estimator go through and estimate the cost of the home project and then make it comparable to the bids you already have.

  5. Very informative post for more details on construction related estimation using excel NAHB's this text might help you.
