Traditional light frame construction vs steel paneled or stud frame construction
This is a question on residential framing construction of a 3700 single level home.
If you had the choice what are the pros and cons of building a metal stud framed home versus a 2×6 framed home. I would like to ask for comments on the pros cons of building a home in these two methods with a small crew. A steel frame home to me seems more labor intensive and in Arizona is going to be like working in a frying pan. How about code issues, tools …again I’m biased toward wanting to stick with traditional framing I’m tooled up for this work as well. any thoughts? I realize this is an extremely generalized open question but stills I’d love to hear the comments for consideration.
