2x8 Floor Framing, 16" Centers
Construction ITEM DESCRIPTION
Construction estimating unit cost for 2x8 floor joist framing applied at 16" spacing.
One square foot of floor framing area.
We figure about 45 square feet of framing completed per hour for a skilled carpenter with an unskilled helper (one laborer per three carpenters).
We figure 1.08 lineal feet of 2x8 lumber per square foot. The theoretical quantity is .75 feet per square foot, but our measurements are based on actual project lumber takeoffs for typical projects (including band joists, an extra joist at the end, doubled joists under bearing walls, etc).
Upstairs floor area.
