Topic: HOW TO CALCULATE THE REQUIRED QUANTITY OF BRICKS, CEMENT AND STEEL

Dear All, i have decided to add rooms on top of my house as a DIY project. I need all the advice and guidance possible as i am from a totally non-technical background and neither have i ever seen anybody's house being made on ground. I want to start by learning how to calculate the requirements including labour estimate. I only need to add the superstructure. Please do help.
