    In the video I will teach you how to use Excel to build a worksheet for estimating projects for the small contractor. The end result is a very basic, but usable estimating template. I hope to make additional videos to expand on this template and build a complete system of estimating, proposals letters, tracking your hours and materials and invoicing the job. All your information about the job is in one worksheet. I am not selling a product and I am a contractor just like you. I just wanted to teach other contractors how to use Excel in estimating.

Visit our website at http://GrizzlyBearArchitecture.com for more information. This video walks the viewer through the 'Big Picture' overview of how to stick to estimate architectural services based on the construction cost per square foot method namely, what are the key aspects that a person would need to keep in mind in order to estimate the cost of architectural services using the construction cost per square foot method? This video is an overview video where the author discusses the steps involved. He will be adding more to the video at a later time. It covers topics like: Challenge Each Job is different Multiple unknowns Expectation for estimating a job is a really close number Construction Cost Floating until the project is over Possibility of deferring billing until project is over A baseline cost is established through estimates and is updated over the course of the project at milestones 1. Determine the Area Using standard calculations 3,000 SF 2. Determine the construction cost Occurs at various milestones Sample price of $300,000 3. Establish Construction Cost per Square Foot $100 per Square Foot via division 4. Percentage of Construction Fee Example: 10% of $100 = $10 5. Cost for Architectural Drawings $10 X 3,000 SF = $30,000
