My home is a "panel" home from the 50's, consisting of offsite built walls sections (2x3s, maybe 5 feet wide or so). I'm noticing that nothing really seems to be 16 on center. Everything seems to be, maybe 15" and even then, once you get to the next panel, things are off again. It's really strange.
Were there different standards back then or what?
Anyone got any tricks for hanging drywall or cabinets and what not? I've just been measuring from a reference point and working with the bare walls to hit the studs. So far it seems to work fine, I just don't think I have any other options
