By Kaitlin O’ConnellAUSTIN — When a new construction project comes along, the first thing you need to do is decide what the biggest challenge is going to be.
You’ll need to find out how much fiberboard will be needed and what kind of cabinets will be used.
And that can be tricky.
For the first time, the American Institute of Architects has teamed up with fiberboard maker Fibreboard Co. and the American Association of Realtors to offer a comprehensive guide to determining your fiberboard needs.
The new guide, which has been updated in recent years, is available online and at fiberboardcabinets.com.
The new guide will be a great resource for those who are starting a new project, or anyone looking for a tool to help them get started.
