"When calculating cost of load bearing walls weather its 1 t010 meters you look at how you are going to secure it. The cost of hiring prop ups and how many are to be fitted. The number of tradesman on site anteater you are carrying the rubble away or you are hiring the skip so usually some of the costs will not be known except the labour of 2 or 3 tradesman. When you are hired you can the check on how much all other things to be used will cost you then produce an accurate cost and total."
