split level addition with basement


what is a good site to get estimates on supplies needed and maybe even a list of supplies? My dad is doing the addition, but I want to get a jump start on financing.

The best site would be the one where you have a set of plans in front of you. Then you could take it to a lumberyard and they will do an itemized listing for you.
Without plans, what are you estimating? Without sitting down and deciding the finishing products(the most expensive component) what are you accomplishing?
Some architects will include(at a price) the material listing for the plans drawn. With that, you can go to the big box stores and spec it out yourself.

I agree with Ron, draft a plan and go to your local building supply and they can help you price it.

I do have the floor plans drawn up. I guess I just didn't think of that. That is why I am the designer and my dad is the carpenter.
