Patio cover stud wall


I am going to put a solid wall on this side of the cover. The wall will mainly be for rain protection and give me the ability to hang a tv, etc.

Seems to call for a basic stud wall but wondered if anyone had any tips or suggestions.

Would a fold-away wall work for you. Like a bifold or accordion type wall. Or do you really need the rigidity for hanging a TV.

If you must have a permanent wall, which will have driving rains against it, consider the seepage of water under the sole plate. Perhaps a small form of concrete say 4" high in that span. If done properly it would prevent seepage and keep the sole plate drier. Also use proper flashing at the top transition to keep the water from seeping down a soaking the entire wall.
Electrical??

Dang you work fast. That patio cover looks awesome! Just for giggles, can you take a pic from out in your yard like you did the first time we started talking about this?

Now on to the issue at hand. Stud wall seems to be the right way to go. Add blocking where you are going to hang your tv mount. probably a 2x6 or 2x8 on the flat between studs.

Here's a crazy idea.

How about a small fold down wall for the TV. It could be lowered for game day and barbecues then swung back up in the rafters/ceiling when not needed. Of course you would remove the TV during weather but you would have a temporary place to mount the screen. Everything could be tucked away after like nothing happened.

Had to slow down on the wall...ran out of days off and my helpers (i.e. my neighbors were out).

Just about to run electric and board up the interior. Want to also wall in the front adjacent to the wall (to make it more of semi-enclosure) but want to enjoy the fruits prior to starting new project. Am thinking half of it as a pony wall and that top half as an opening door/window.
