4Used to use M&S....
By Some Guy
Used to use M&S but always found the figures to be significantly higher than actual costs in my area. Stopped using it when I built my own house and the figures were way off. The Craftsman NBC manuals are always reasonably accurate in my area and a ton cheaper. Comes with software to run figures and print out a breakdown. My only gripe is the basement costs are always ridiculously high. I did one today and it figured it at $88/sf (finished) which was over double the actual cost for a similar finished basement in my area. Other than that annoyance i really like it.

4Great for the Price
By T. Shields
New editor this year, have used this for about 10 years. Good stuff. But it could be a little more complete and I wish that they made a cost manual strictly for agricultural buildings. The worst off I see is the poultry barns. Here they cost $10 a SF for broilers, $15 for pullet, about $18 for breeder hen barns and the grandparent stock will run over $20/SF... Their costs are not accurate - nothing like our local costs....maybe for some kind of barn in the Delmarva region but not in the Midwest and Midsouth.
