Under-Stair Framing Cost
Construction Item Description
Estimating unit cost for the framing in the triangle under a stairway.
We figure about 1 1/2 hours of carpenter time to frame the triangle. This cost is for one side of the stairway-- double it if you need to frame under both sides of a stairway in the middle of an open space.
We figure about 40 lineal feet of 2x4 lumber to frame the space under the stairway.
Goldenseal suggests the number of stairways (calculated from the story count).
Source of Construction Pricing
The price is based on job costing data from a couple of projects done by Turtle Creek Construction.
