Scott, just an FYI - I'm not sure if your doing the work yourself or getting any permits -- but I'm almost 100% that Ontario Hydro makes you use armoured electrical "BX" cable through steel studs, where wood studs you can use the regular "Romex".
Just a heads up if you decide to use steel studs and are doing the electrical work yourself.
Thanks guys, and Drew...yes I am doing the work myself.
I expect I will go the wood rout for all the above reasons.
I have been lucky enough to find very straight lumber at the local Home Depot, and now that the softwood lumber industry is facing huge tariffs to get their product to the USA...maybe I will be able to reap the benefits re: price reductions. Wishful thinking eh?
