Software for Builders
When I was getting out of building and remodeling, I had a website with password-protected places for customers to log in and view documents/photos related to their jobs. I was too cheap to buy estimating software, so I made spreadsheets to estimate things like lumber and drywall. There was no SketchUp, so I drew everything by hand. One builder I know used to set up a fax machine on the job site so the design team could fax detail drawings over.
What kinds of software do you GBA members use to design/build/remodel homes?
How many of you use your smart phones for getting the job done?
Do any of you have websites with private areas for customers and their projects?
How many just mash-up a bunch of Google and Flickr stuff?
What about the iPad, anyone see that becoming a part of their SOP?
