what is a drawer stack labor factor?

What exactly does the heading "drawer stacks" mean in the labor factors. How does it differ from "shop built drawer".

Drawer stacks refer the number of stacks in a cabinet, not the number of drawers. Example .. a typical 2 door, 2 drawer base cabinet has 2 stacks, meaning that they are positioned side by side. A typical 3 drawer base cabinet has 1 stack, as in all the drawers stacked on top of each other.

The system has to know the number of stacks so it can add labor for a drawer divider and also to accurately calculate drawer front and box materials.

An important note .. if you have cabinets with any drawers (regular, large, or false) you MUST fill in the number of stacks in the cabinet styles table. Otherwise you'll get an ERR price when you attempt to takeoff that cabinet.
Thanks for participating!
