Building a house is a big project; if you are doing such a project for the first time, you should have all the plans.

Your contractor will tell you about the building materials and quantities required.
Obvious items are bricks, cement, metals, wood, concrete, and clay. These new and used building materials will form the foundation and structure of the house. The amount you need will depend on the size of the house. Your contractor can help you with this, but you can also ask your building supply store for details. The building supply store has a unique calculator that will show you how much of each item you need to purchase, depending on the size of the structure.
