Using steel was fast for me

1) It was bc complaining about the time, not me.
2) I was able to get ALL the steel I needed in one load of my small pick-up. Even had room left over for the dozen or so wood studs I got. Couldn't do that with wood studs. Steel was in a MUCH smaller pile than wood would have been.
3) Only took 1/2 can of spary adhesive
4) Plywood used was scrap I had laying around the workshop.
5) Framing with the 100 or so steel studs took less time than framing the one wood stud wall. Did one wall in wood because I was going to hang cabinets. Then I learned how to do it in steel. Oh well - next time.
6) I don't think the "average" DIYer is familiar with wood framing either. Depends on how you define average, I guess (mean, median, or mode?).

Finally I agree - use what you are comfortable with using.
