Question:

On average, how much does it cost to build a wall?

I recently moved into my mom's finished basement, and I would like to put up a wall, with a door, for more privacy, but I'm not sure how much it would cost. I know it's hard to estimate the cost for something like this, but I'm just looking for a price range? The wall would be approximately 8 feet long, with no electrical, and a door. The only thing I think may cause a problem is that the ceiling is a tiled ceiling, which I'm not sure if a wall can be built around the ceiling, or not? If anyone has any suggestions, it would be a lot of help. The main reason for putting a wall up is because my step father is allergic to cats, and I have two 8 month old kittens, so I'm mostly concerned with keeping the cat hair and dander from making its way to the rest of the house. Thanks for any information!

Answer:

About $200 in materials. Use light gauge steel studs. Fasten the top track to the suspended ceiling grids. Fasten the bottom yrack to the floor with concrete fasteners, or wood screws if its a wood floor. Good luck with your kitties!
