If you're building a new home or constructing an addition, then framing will be a part of your project. It can be tough to predict what the cost to install framing will be for your particular project. The first step is to contact a reputable professional who can help you determine the best course of action for your project. Learn more about how much it cost to frame a house with carpentry:

Square Footage

The size of the project will make a big impact on the cost to install framing. Some professionals charge per square foot versus the amount of time a project takes. Regardless, bigger homes will take longer and will require more materials.


The complexity of your project will also affect the cost to install framing. Steep roofs or any shapes that aren't rectangles will ultimately add to the price.


Since lumber costs fluctuate, it can be tough to predict costs in advance. Some homes use steel framing, and it's commonly used in commercial construction. The cost to install framing with steel will be slightly more expensive, but the framing will be extremely durable and make less of an impact on the environment. Steel framing will also hold up better against termites.


If you decide to make any changes after the framing has begun, it will increase the cost. This can happen in large home projects if you think of something new you'd like to add. Try to keep these changes to a minimum.

Are you kidding?there is no size indicated,level of finish,Is it a deck or maybe a complicated roof system? As a contractor,that would put a number in the consumers head that is not at all well as unfair to the general contractor.

This "cost estimate" is useless without a cost/sq. ft. figure.
