Think up a market that exists. Size it. Google to verify. Let’s try one live. US residential drywall market. 300M ppl in US, avg household of 2, so 150M homes. Assume half rent and half buy. 75M apartments / 25 yrs between remodel * $50k to build one = 150B. 75M single fam / 50 yr remodel * $100k = 150B . So 300B residential const. Thumb in the air, drywall seems like 10% of the build. $30B. Def sounds high, way high. You get the idea though

That is very helpful, thanks BCG1, looks like I will fail

Basically, what BCG is showing is to carefully flow and support your assumptions. Going a tick more slowly BCG likely would’ve caught the labor piece live. An interview going well and a good interviewer would likely see that cost number and challenge you, giving the chance to course correct.

Just practice. Further reflection, I’m way b/c I equated cost of construction to material. Should have at least 50% haircut to reflect labor costs

2.9 per household
