How much wood is needed to build a home?

We are going to build us a home. I am trying to figure out how much lumber we are going to need to build it. Is there any sites that can help me determine that along with other material needed and the cost?

Here where I live, a lumber yard will figure out almost exactly what materials you need. All you have to do is give them your blueprint for a couple days. They do this around here for free. in hopes of getting your buisness.
