1x3 Basement Wall Cost
Construction ITEM DESCRIPTION
Construction estimating unit cost for 1x3 furring strips applied to a 7 ft to 8 ft basement masonry wall using .22 cartridge nails and 24" on center spacing.
This is a "fixed height" unit cost for usual basement wall heights. Use the previous unit cost for other wall heights.
One lineal foot of wall.
We figure 10 lineal feet of wall per carpenter hour, plus a little unskilled help.
7 feet of furring strips per foot of wall plus a few shim shingles and .22 cartridge nails. This assumes an 8 foot ceiling height, with 16" spacing and a little extra for corners, windows etc.
Goldenseal suggests the length of exterior basement walls from the Basic Dimensions screen.
