Dan Atcheson, the son of a Texas architect, began working on construction sites as a teenager. During his career he worked at most of the construction trades, from earthwork and masonry to framing and roofing. He added estimating to his skills in the 70s, teaching construction cost estimating at Texas Tech University.

In the 1980s and 1990s he was a featured presenter at estimating seminars and conventions nationwide. He now divides his time among his construction consulting business, writing on construction topics and raising English bulldogs. His technical papers on construction and estimating have been published in many trade magazines, and he has authored several construction manuals: Estimating Earthwork Quantities, Earthmoving Equipment, Production Rates & Costs, Estimating Framing Quantities and Roofing Construction & Estimating
