The **Wall Stud Count** calculator computes the number of studs (e.g. 2x4s) needed to build a wall based on the length of the wall and spacing.

**INSTRUCTIONS**: Choose units and enter the following:

- (
**L**) Length of Wall - (
**oC**) on-center spacing of studs. The default is 16".

**Wall Stud Count (nS):** The calculator computes the **number of studs** needed for the wall. Note: this number of studs does not include the base nor top plates since longer boards are often used for those.

**Studs for a Wall**: Computes the number of studs (e.g., 2x4s) needed to build a wall based on the length of the wall and spacing.**Stud Cost for a Wall**: Computes the cost of studs in a wall based on the number of studs needed to frame a wall and the unit price of a stud.**Blocking for a Wall**: Compute the number and length of blocking boards.**Studs for a Room**: 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.**Stud Cost for a Room**: Computes the cost of stud boards required for a room based on the length of the four walls and and on the unit price of the boards.**Plate Boards for Room**: Computes the number of top and bottom plate boards required for a room based on the length of the four walls and whether the top plate is doubled or single.**Plate Boards Cost for a Room**: Computes the cost of plate boards required for a room based on the length of the four walls and whether the top plate is doubled or single and on the unit price of the boards.**Room Framing Cost**: Computes the cost of studs and plate boards required for a room based on the length of the four walls and and on the unit price of the boards used for studs and plates.
