I'm an experienced carpenter in Langley/Abbotsford, B.C. I've done some contracting in home improvement/renos, but now I want to focus mainly on interior finishing in new construction: S.F. Homes, Custom Homes, etc. I'm all geared up, I've started talking to builders, but lack experience in estimating. Is there a basic square footage formula for estimating millwork installation, based on the complexity of the job, or is it necessary to calculate linear footage from the plans? Any help or advice from my fellow colleagues would be greatly appreciated!
