Lumber Cut-Schedule for Estimating & Framing
Does your framer know exactly how you've estimated the lumber?
Even the best framer can make a great estimator look bad if they’re not working from the same playbook.
Do your jobs look anything like this?
Here's the problem
Say, you’ve estimated 2x6x14’s for the 7’ ceilings joists, and the framer cuts them from 2x6x8’s. Somewhere down the line, they’ll ultimately run short on 2x6x8’s and have a stack of 2x6x14’s left over.
Unfortunately, this is typically flagged as a "takeoff error".
Get the estimator & framer working together
For lumber estimators, this simple schedule becomes your communication and accountability tool between you and the field.
“This is how I’ve estimated the lumber, this is how it must be cut”.
Here's how the Cut-Schedule works
5’ members are estimated and cut from 10’ lumber
7’ members are estimated and cut from 14’ lumber
All other short lengths are estimated and cut from 12’ lumber
It's simple to learn, simple to use and extremely efficient.
