Lumber Takeoffs
Lumber takeoffs are the specialty of Haas Estimating and Consulting Services.  Frank developed the lumber takeoff workbook back on his first multi-family project at Fairfield utilizing the same steps a Timberline program would use.  The workbook is built out of over 21 spreadsheets that cover the steps in taking off the lumber such as the following:

  Wall Framing                    Build Up                                        Blocking
  Beams                               Headers                                        Subflooring
  Bridging                            Banding                                        Wall Sheathing
  Fake Beams                      Furr Downs                                  Floor Draft Stops
  Attic Draft Stops              Stairs                                            Window and Door Opening
