Abstract:

The comparative in-place costs of wood and steel light residential framing were examined for the period 1970-1978. Material and labor requirements were calculated for floor, nonload-bearing partition, and load-bearing wall framing systems using Douglas-fir and southern pine lumber, and galvanized steel shapes. Material and labor costs were those prevailing in the Chicago area. Author
