Just the self weight of those materials?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Yes what I am actually doing is calculating the square metre rate of a traditional hardwood timber floor.
I have to lift a floating boat shed out of a pond and crane operator needs to know the weight of the building (approx).
With the info you provide I was going to remove the bearer weight to calculate the weight of the 100 x 50mm wall board clad walls as well. Thanks Matt
