interior wall framing question
Framing my addition is progressing nicely. Exterior walls are framed and just about sheathed. I've got a couple of questions, tho.
The room is 6' x12' interior dimensions.
I have a 24" wall seperating the shower stall and a 20" wide x 24" deep closet. The wall will hold the plumbing for the shower head. The little closet will hold towels and allow access to service the pipes in the future.
I realized today that I hadn't planned a way to anchor the top of the little wall. I'd rather not do a conventional header, because I don't want to loose 3" of width in the closet opening to the jack studs.
Can I anchor the top of the 24" wall to blocking between the ceiling joists, and let the opening go all the way to the ceiling?
