Framing double walled corners


I'm using 2x3's to frame my entire theater room. interior walls will be double walled as well. What is the best way to frame corners in a single and double wall assembly using 2x3? Will the California Corner work with studs of this size and for the double wall? I will be placing 2 layers of 5/8" drywall on the theater side wall as well.

Also I've been reading that I should start in a corner of a foundation wall and as far as spacing take 3/4" off of the corner and THEN start the 24" OC. Could someone help me get a better understanding of this please.

As far as framing just imagine putting 8 ft sheet on your studs if u put your studs starting in corner if u went every 16 inches on the inch the sheet would not catch so that's why u hook tape on corner and mark 15 1/4, 31 1/4, 47 1/4, etc. you r still going 16 in apart but u want to account for sheet product( plywood Sheetrock) seams to land on center of studs hope that helps I'm not a good explainer

15-1/4" works for the second wall but the first one you have to add the 2-1/2 inches for the second wall or 17-3/4" for the first stud. ( you are adapting for the inside corners.) I would use three 2xs for the corner because you need the room to fasten the second wall drywall which is now 5/8" smaller because of the thickness of the first wall drywall.

Ok so since I'm doing 24" OC I would just start the corner at 23 1/4, then 47 1/4 and so on?

Yes except where a wall butts into nother wall inside or outside corner (since the surface u will be sheet rocking had a 3 1/2 wall there u would have to figure that into your layout for that wall ) kind of confusing hope u understand

another way is to pull and mark the first 23 1/4" # and tack a nail to the plate. hook tape to nail and pull 24" for the rest of the wall(16" if laying out a 16" wall). old time craftsmen would have an awl in the pouch for that type of stuff and the laying out of walls.

That's a good idea. Where do I start the measurement and tape pull for the first 23 1/4" in a corner?

you have to think backwards. whatever building material you are trying to break center of the stud, wall stud layout will go according to that. drywall will be 8' to 12' increments. Where to start the first piece of drywall on the wall will determine layout and in order to use factory drywall size you lay the wall out for that size.
I always pick a corner and start the layout from one direction the entirety of the wall length. if you have a stud land a few inches away from a doorway it's ok, it's part of the stud layout. edit,, be mindful of light switches fitting into wall around doorway when configuring stud layout...
