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?
