technical specification

The wooden house of Santa Claus is a traditional home located at the North Pole. It is made of wood and is a cozy home for Santa and his team of elves. The house has many features, such as a fireplace, a kitchen, and a workshop. Inside, you'll find a variety of toys and presents for the children of the world. The house is often filled with the smell of cookies and laughter from the elves. It is a place of joy and happiness for all

NEXT STEPS 🦌

1

Let's run Auto Measure to get measurements for walls, foundations, roofs, windows and doors

2

Let's create our own structure for measurements and move them to the appropriate folders

3

Let’s turn measurements into materials & works with the help of Assemblies Database.
For the cost estimate of the house, elves have prepared the following list for Santa:

1. External log walls
2. Interrnal brick walls
3. Wood floor
4. Ceiling finishes
5. Roof shingles
6. Doors and Windows

For each item from the list, we apply the appropriate Assemblies or Items. Each of them is the volume of work or the amount of material, as well as their cost

4

Santa needs to hurry up to make it before Christmas, it's time to generate a report.
Let’s set up a report structure and view

5

We get the final cost of Santa's house

6

Let’s repeat the same actions for the second version

7

Now it remains only to compare 2 options and show them to Santa for a final review. We will take into account the total cost of the house and the cost per square meter

What we get:

Version 1

Version 1

Total cost is $106,644
Cost per square meter is $1,596

Version 2

Version 1

Total cost is $119,504
Cost per square meter is $1,352

Conclusion: the 2nd version is more profitable. Kreo suggests Santa go ahead with it

Santa was so delighted that left Kreo promo code for you!
