Costing Help

Post by lynx » Tue Feb 12, 2013 11:54 am

Guys of the board

I need to cost for some 200x60mm Softwood capping.

Section will have a 160x15mm deep groove to underside to allow to sit over stud wall
with chamfer to both top edges. Primed all round with black WB primer.

Raw timber price at £400/m3

Need to get out 86m run.

What's the boards £m cost?

I think I'm too high

0.20m x 0.06m x 86m = 1.032m3 @ £400 = £412.80.

Cost per m3 = £4.80

WP. I know that costs, I was wondering after machining, spindle work and priming.

I'm coming in at £21.74/m

WP. I would also add, your cost is for finished sizes, you should be costing from the available raw material width and thickness. Boards are 225 wide x 63 (which is too tight) or 75mm, ie: 1.451m3 @ £400 = £580.5. Gotta count the stuff thats going in the skip.
