there is drywall on the side that conects to the house. I can't see how he removed them , he later patched it. there were only holes in the drywall, could not see it but the other sides are just wood. like all garages. is douglas fur ok? it was sawed off and he wants to nail a wood strip on the wall and nail the support wood down on that , is nails ok or should he use screws? or a metal bracket?

well... sounds like this also involve removing and covering/patching the walls besides framing.... then $200 bucks is real cheap..... I don't think you can go too much wrong.... if he is willing to take the effort to open up the wall... and putting them back... he won't do a lousy job on the frames itself to save a couple of bucks...

I cannot figure out what a "wall support" is. Could you describe what it is your trying to have done in a different way? What is the purpose of these wall supports?
