What a gem of a book - with incredibly detailed drawings for an estimating handbook (Illustrations by Tami Atcheson). Each chapter tells a story and builds toward a comprehensive design approach to estimating. Chapters include: "Board Feet", "Lumber Waste", "The Floor System", "The Roof System", "Structural Wood Design", and "Cost Savings through Design". While Atcheson's style tends toward the dry side, he is thorough and very detailed. Anyone looking for a little preparatory text on estimating, will find this book very informative. The author treats estimating like a game of chess.
