2x3 Metal Stud Framing Cost
Construction Item Description
Construction estimating unit cost for interior wall framing built with 2x3 metal studs.
One lineal foot of wall framing.
We figure that a carpenter can frame about 7 lineal feet of interior 2x3 wall per hour.
The cost includes 5.8 feet of 2x3 metal stud per foot of wall (based on 24" stud spacing), plus top and bottom tracks and fasteners.
The stud quantity is adjusted for different stud spacings (from the Structural Dimensions screen) and ceiling heights (from the Basic Dimensions screen). There is also an 8% to 12% waste factor on materials.
Total interior wall length.
