Framing a wall in my metal building


Fair warning: First time framing a wall.

I have a 50'x30' metal building, with a slab floor and wooden posts, that I want to divide in to two large rooms. The building has 6 large ceiling trusses that are 30' wide. One truss on each end and the other four spaced 10' apart down the length of the building. I plan to frame a wall underneath one of the trusses that divides the building into one 30'x30' room and one 20'x30' room. Below is my framing diagram and materials list.

I plan to fix the bottom plate to the floor with the Ramset nails and nail the end studs to the wooden posts on either end of the building. I have do not currently plan to nail the top plate to the truss above it because I'm not sure what affect that would have on the roof structure.

I would really appreciate any feedback or guidance!!

it looks like you have it all figured out. if the truss is wood you can nail to it most likely, in fact you need to nail the top to something. have you considered using metal framing instead of wood because it is a metal building?

You will need to attach the top plate to the truss.
