How to Start Framing in Corner
 
2 Attachment(s)
Hello,

I am in the proccess of finishing my basement, and I am about to start the framing. I was wondering if the way I plan to start the framing in the corner is the correct way to do it, see attached jpeg pictures in the post. The first picture is an overview to show how the studs would lay out over the first 8 ft, for hanging a 4x8 drywall sheet. The second picture is a close up view of the corner. Notice in the second picture, the drywall for the bottom wall starts at the left wall, and then would span 8' from the begining of the first stud, to the middle of the 7th stud. (So center of first stud to center of second stud is 15.25", and then c-c is 16". The drywall on the left wall, starts at the face of the drywall for the bottom wall, attached to the backer stud and then the 8' span ends up in the middle of the 7th stud. Notice on the left wall, from the face of bottom wall drywall, to the center of the first stud is 16", and then the rest of studs are 16" centers.

Is this the correct way to do this, or am I not approaching it the right way.

Thanks in advance,
Steve

That will work, we call them Cali corners. But for a basement you can just put a stud at the inside corner of each wall and tie it in with a block

I did research and found the cali corner, I did it that way so I can get wall insulation all the way to the corner. The way I spaced everything out takes into account the 1/2" thickness of drywall, so the bottom wall drywall needs to be done first, and then the left wall drywall can be butt up to the bottom wall. Quick question: Should there be no gap between the drywall pieces on the bottom and left, correct? The way I show it, and the way everything is dimensioned, it takes into account no gap between the two pieces of drywall in the corner.

Thanks,
Steve

what your showing is also called a L-stud. its exactly what you want. it will also work for the backer for partition walls if you make the nailer a 2x6.. by using a 2x6 it will catch the drywall for both sides of the divider wall as its 2" wider.. some will do it with 3 2x4 creating a U stud or simply installing horizontal blocking between the field studs.. the blocking typically is installed every 2 ft up to the top plate
