How to Start Framing in Corner
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,
