Deck Materials List

Recommended Posts

Fairly new user so I'm using X12. I'm a deck builder/re-modeler and designing my first big deck project using Chief Architect. 

 

I added the dimensions of the house so I could attach the deck, adjusted the terrain, everything looks pretty good, so now I want a materials list. But I can't seem to get it dialed in to just the deck.

 

I've added a couple screen shots, and an image of the design. As you can see there are two decks I'd like to generate materials list from to give to my lumberyard sales guy. I tried selecting the deck area from the 1st floor view, no only handrail, but now structural, framing, or decking. I tried to select the deck from the 0 floor view, but couldn't do it with out selecting terrain, exiting patio, driveway....

 

Any help would be great. I could do a take off manually, but paying a lot for the software, and hoping it would do it form me.

 

Thank you

Have you reviewed the Materials List Tools?

 

There might be articles/videos on the Materials List on the Chief website too.
