12/9/2021 Hi Mandie, Good morning. Here’s a link to my spreadsheet for plumbing. Please COPY the spreadsheet. If you don’t have a Gmail account you might be required to open one which is really easy.
For the budget in class, I completed the MSRP, Qty, and Extended Sale Price Columns. If I was running my own project, I add an estimate for freight and an administrative fee – aka known as a markup. I’ve trained with Terri Taylor of the Interior Design Business Academy who has been featured in several podcasts. I think “administrative fee” sounds better than “markup” and accurately represents the luxury service.
The administrative fee is completely separate from your design fee and pays for all of the tasks of purchasing and procurement. To be profitable, I suggest that the administrative fee be at least 35% or higher. Happy designing and get paid what you’re worth!

RE: Budget. Hi Mandie, I can circle back soon with links to google sheets. Gary
Thanks, Regina, May I please ask how I can learn more about the online Revit Class?
I’m going to take my own measurements for the joy of the experience and to get a “feel” for the spaces. I expect to gather ideas as I measure.
I’m on the project catalog tab/page
bathroom CAD design (search)
34 projects available
I hope this helps.
For the class, I’ve decided to remodel the kitchen and the master bathroom in my home (2D and 3D). My wife, Sheila, will love me!
