Framing an Angle wall??? Help
Hi, i am renovating my house and want to frame in an opening to turn my now dining room into a bedroom. Problem is the wall will have to be on an angle. I need help how to figure out the angle i will require to tie the walls together. the measurements of the opening are: From Outside tip to outside tip 50". Inside tip to inside tip 44 1/2". This is a little vague but i hope you can understand what im trying to do here. Thanks!

I have a drawing of the opening but im not sure how to upload it here...

Why not just lay out those dementions on a 2 X 4, set your saw to the angles you marked and do a test fit.

If I had to know what the angle was I would use one of these.

I'd set 2, 2 X 4's againt the outside walls to use as a referance point.

If those old walls have sheetrock returns your going to have to remove the old metal outside corners to tie in the new sheetrock.
I'd use the sheetrock tape with the metal bands built into them to form the new corners.
