How do you guys estimate fasteners for conventional wood framing? Percentage of wood costs? Calculate actual number of fasteners per wood materials list?
And don't forget to resalvage them from any tearout and the dumpster.Count up the fastners in 10 lnft of wall / Divide by 10 = nails/lnft.
total lineal ft of wall in project * nails/lnft= ttl nails
ttl nails/nails per pound (or Box) = how many you need.
but you need to add a handful for each opening and a few for corners :laughing:
I built in Fairbanks but Anchorage AK is like that too, I've seen similar numbers from colleagues there.Our hardware on these homes is pretty substantial, I usually turn in fasteners on the the bid breakdown for hardware. My hardware can run anywhere from $5000.00 to $20,000.00 depending on the size. Tons of seismic chit to deal with out here.
good lord - had a really good carpenter who ran around at the end of the day and picked up nails, threw em in a 5gal bucket. He said twice a year he'd sit down with a bottle of Jack and sort em out. He was unique, always had fasteners when needed :laughing:. From New Berlin WI (bwiab may understand)... he went around back a house we were framing and cried for 20 minutes - the Day Stevie Ray Vaughn diedAnd don't forget to resalvage them from any tearout and the dumpster.
That was for the square feet of the house. So a 3000 square foot house would run somewhere from $300 to $450. That is for gun nails and staples only. Hand nails and Simpson hardware are provided by the lumber yard.Warren - when you say square feet. Is that square feet of the house footprint or of the wall surface?
