2x4 Stud Wall Framing Cost
Construction Item Description
Construction estimating unit cost for interior wall framing built with 2x4 wood studs. This is a "fixed size" unit cost for 24" stud spacing and 10 foot ceiling height.
One lineal foot of interior wall framing.
NOTE-- This unit cost covers simple wall framing with no complications. There are additional unit costs for each corner and interior door opening.
We figure that a carpenter can frame a bit less than 8 lineal feet of interior 2x4 wall per hour.
NOTE-- For experienced framing crews doing new construction, you can probably reduce the labor hours by 25% to 50%.
The cost includes .7 studs (2x4 by 10 foot) per foot of wall, plus double top and bottom plates and fasteners. There is also an 8% waste factor on the framing materials.
Total interior wall length.
