The Studs for a Room calculator computes the number of stud boards required to frame a room based on the length of the four walls. Note: the stud count includes the extra studs at the corners where the walls meet. These extra studs are use to create solid interior corners for drywall or other wall coverings.

Studs for a Room (S): The number of studs required are computed. Note, this number does not include the base nor top plates since longer boards are typically used for those.
Computing the number of studs in a room is done by computing the number of studs needed in the four walls. Each wall has the first stud (1) plus the number of studs needed for spacing (oC) AND one additional stud in the corner. This additional stud is often forgotten by non-professionals. It is spaced two inches (2") away from the last stud and makes a nailing base in the corner with the first stud from the adjacent wall.
