I need help my husband is out of town and wants a wall with a door built in his office before he gets home. Do I use 2x 4's, how far apart should they be spaced so that I can put insulation between them and any other helpfull advice that can be given would be great

wall framing help please


The spacing of studs should be 16 inches on center.
The insulation will fit right in if they are spaced 16 inches apart.
