Hello all, i am a long time lurker, and now first time poster. I am beginning a partial basement finish , my first LARGE project, and will more than likely have 1,000,000 questions. Here is my first;
For framing a partition wall that is 16 feet in length, what is the best way to form the top and base plates? My ceiling is 9 feet tall, so i just bought a load of 10 foot 2*4s. Should i just build 1 frame 10ft wide and 1 6ft wide, and have them meet in the middle of the wall, or is it better to go buy LONG 2*4's for the top and base plates?
Hope this isn't too dumb of a question!!!
