Re: Basement Framing Labor Rate


Materials+labor+overhead&profit divided by sq ft = sq ft price. Basements would be about the hardest to bid by sq ft. How many soffits, windows, access, full room or partition ect... IMO sq ft and lineal ft are for job costing when the job is done.

There is a good article in JLC about accurate ballpark budgeting. Under 100 sq ft is over $200 ft, while over a 1000 sq ft is under $50 ft.

That's what I would do if it's the good stuff and the Doritos are fresh.
Dip and salsa.

Shut it down

Re: Basement Framing Labor Rate


Framing labor rates here are the same whether it's a whole house or a basement. You can hire a framer for $35 an hour. You can hire better framers for more per hour.
