I have open concept living room and I want to build a wall with doors from scratch. The wall height is from floor to ceiling (average) about 2.30m and about 3m wide and door must fit inside. What are the rough costs of material and labour?

One should really see the room and the proposed wall area before estimating. I would suggest calling someone local to visit and give you details on what is involved.

I just built 2 partitions and I can tell you this, it all depends on where you live because the price of material. In Manitoba, It would cost you $21 per 10' sheet of 1/2" gypsum board. (You would want 6) one extra for just in case =$126 then you need 16 studs. That should be around $57 for lumber, $23 for pale of ready set ( mud) and tape $5 a roll. Now depends on who you hire. Guys charge $4-$8 per L/ft or depending on experience $30-$60 per hour per guy. So if you got 3 guys there, he could be charging you $180 an hour believe it or not. I charge $3 per L/ft for framing interior $2 L/ft for taping $2 L/ft for painting and for drywall I charge $20 per sheet instillation.
