Default Planning Guide/Spreadsheet? Cad designs?

Anyone have (and are willing to share) a planning guide/spreadsheet to help calculate number of blocks/bricks/amount of concrete etc for a standard 42" build? Any cad drawings out there to guide the building? I know there are cad and spreadsheet wizards out there - I have run across some of your amazing tools... I am hoping this thread turns into a collection of the best tools out there...

If I recall, we used 78 double blocks for our base, this takes it to 1m high for the door opening.

I will second this request for CAD file of a 42" build.

I work with CAD and have started a quick mock up for my own purposes, but unfortunately as it is also my first ever attempt at build I am just guessing most of the dims. etc.

A sketchup model or CAD with 3D blocks would be awesome.
