I build custom houses and was curious to hear how much time other carpenters allow for installing pre hung doors, casing windows, casing doors and any other part of trim. I no this can very so assume everything is on site, stain grade products, and high quality craftsmanship

This took me somewhere between 6-8 hours. Yes just this one wall. That would include the casing on the door.

Property Room Wall Furniture Floor


Many different factors made it that way but as others have mentioned there is no set answer to your question.

I wouldn't mind paying you 6 - 8 hours to do that. It looks like you did a nice job on it, which is the main thing. It beats paying you 4 hours to phuck it up and the paying another 6 to redo it, and leaving a bad taste in a customers mouth.

Lets say your following good framers and you don't have to fix door openings and windows have been shimmed straight and flush with drywall. There are a lot of variables in trim but you have to come up with a labor rate before you get the job. Knowing this and high quality being expected what do you allow

My mind is boggled. Does getting lucky happen sometimes or is it assumed to happen every time?
