Mine is about $120pfr for kitchen carpentry.

Work desk $150pfr

Full height display glass cabinet $300pfr

Carpentry is by psf so it also depends on what you want to do.

Hi Namja,

Carpenters usually quote by PFR (per foot run). Several factors contribute to the PFR pricing:

- height

- whether you have sliding doors

- doors with glass

- etc.

For HDB , the full height is usually about 2.6meters. Therefore the cost for a full height wardrobe that spans 6 feet width would be calculated as such:

6 x $300 pfr (not psf as mentioned by benetay) = $1,800

The market rate really differs between IDs (Interior Designers) to sub-contractors (eg. carpentry workshops). ID firms generally perform a higher mark-up as they engage sub-contractors to construct the wood-work items.

I went direct to a carpentry workshop to get mine done previously and I believe I enjoyed cost savings of at least 20-30%.

Hope this helps.

Cheers!
