Framing help needed
I am currently involved in a kitchen reno. I have a wall that's over 3/4" out of level from bottom to top leaning outwards. This will be a U shaped kitchen, and there will be angled 24" cabinets on each side wall onto this window wall. On the right hand side there are 4 studs running up, each attached to each other. On the left hand side, there are 2 studs, then a vent where I wouldn't be able to sister in a stud, then 3 studs. The window is being replaced in a few weeks, so whatever I do to the wall won't incorporate that.
Here's an image of the wall:
I've used the red to mark out all of the studs, and there are a bunch of them on this wall. I had a few ideas, but nothing seems "easy":
- Rip boards and shim out from top to bottom? This just seems tough with the number of boards to rip.
- Sister to the inside boards and shim out the solid regions? This leaves minimal room for insulation, and there's a cross brace running the length that means I have 2 areas to level for each. Plus lots of ripping.
- Pull out the inside boards, re-frame, and shim solid regions? Each board, even cross, are attached to the sheathing, which means big damage. And more ripping.
- Leave as is as there will be base cabinets where the counter will mask it and just two upper corner cabinets?
- Something else I haven't thought of?
I really don't know what should be my next step, so some ideas or confirmation of mine would be great... Thanks in advance...
