Hi, need some direction on the proper method of securing a non load
bearing wall that runs in the same direction as the trusses.Bottom is
secured to the floor. How do you tie in the top of this wall to the building?

cut 2x4 blocks to fit in between the two trusses that will be on either side of the wall. Lay them flat and attach to the trusses so they are flush with the bottom of the truss. Attach you top plate to these blocks.

Thanks AG if only it were that simple. The wall in question is an outside wall, the next closest wall is the original house 16' away. Does this mean
I must start at the house and put blocks inbetween all the trusses from there to the outside wall to tie in ? and in how many locations along
the 32' wall.

Huh? Is this a kind of "fence"? You're building a single wall 16' away from your house? Maybe a quick sketch or some pictures will help me understand what you're after here.

Ok, the gagage has 3 walls. 2 end walls attached to the hoiuse. These 2 walls are 16' the outside wall that runs between the 2 end walls is 32'.
The 2 end walls are load bearing with the trusses running the full 32'.
I need to know the proper method of keeping the outside wall plum.

I hope this helps
