Wall Framing Estimating Cost Changes


Starting with Goldenseal 3.2 we have made some minor improvements and changes to a few of the wall framing Assemblies in the Framing estimating cost category.

  • We changed all use of chipboard sheathing to OSB (oriented strand board)
  • We added better descriptions for unit costs using fixed stud spacing versus variable spacing
  • We tweaked material quantities in some of the wall furring assemblies
  • We changed one garage roof sheathing assembly to wall sheathing
  • We added a suggested quantity to a few wall sheathing assemblies that didn't already have one


If you have Goldenseal 3.1 or earlier, you can import these Assembly changes into your company file.

To add the changes, first download the update file. Follow these steps:

  1. Click this link-- Wall Framing Update.
  2. Save the text file on your hard drive and remember where it is.

Next, import the data into your company file:

  1. Open your company file.
  2. Choose Import from the File menu, and choose **Other Update from the submenu.
  3. Locate the Wall_Framing_Costs text file that you just downloaded from the website.
  4. Click OK.
  5. Goldenseal will automatically change the assemblies.

**If you have an older version of Goldenseal, you may not see the Other Update command. In that case, use the Payroll Update command instead. It does exactly the same thing.
