2x6 Metal Stud Wall Framing Cost
Construction Item Description
Construction estimating unit cost for exterior wall framing built with 2x6 metal studs.
One lineal foot of basic wall framing.
We figure that a carpenter can frame about 7 lineal feet of exterior 2x4 wall per hour.
The cost includes 5.8 feet of 2x6 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 the materials.
Total exterior wall length.
