- How are you planning on tying the half-wall to the main wall? Does the half wall have a free end/s or does it end at walls on each side?
- At 5.5" depth, are you framing with 2X6 or 2x4? (16" o.c. is fine either way)
- Is this going to be a structural element or is it simply a shelf surface? Shelf and brackets, or a shelf with concealed hardware would be a lot less hassle unless the appearance of a wall is a major design issue.

The appearance of the wall is what we want. Not structural in any way just to put pictures, knick knacks, drinks etc. 2x4 and would be nailed into the studs of the regular wall.
