Costs vary widely. Very widely. Depends on your location, type of addition, site location, access to the site, etc...
Better to speak to local contractors who come to your house and view the plans you have ready for them.

Good one!
I'd say anywhere between $0.00 if you create all of your supplies yourself and scavenge everything and recycle on up to $1,000,000, if you have Ron do it in solid gold.

There are times I have an issue keeping copper on site, could you imagine gold building materials?

Probably easier than copper! There's no scrap yards that deal in gold that I know of....

gold is far more malleable...essentially infinitely malleable. Would be much easier to work with in my opinion.

(anyway, ridiculous threads deserve ridiculous replies IMHO).

by the way OP...in my area if you have two or more dogs in the addition who are both doing the ruffing, costs go dramatically down.

They'd hammer it into a circle and bring it to a jewelry exchange.

I could tell you $8. And someone else might say $5. Still a third person may post $10.

What will you know? Nothing.

Give your plans to half dozen different framing contractors in your local area. Then, and only then, will you know the 'going rate' in your area.
