I have used this type of idea for years. Only thing I add is a 2x4x4' block on the floor behind the upright. Also I use 8' or whatever I need if taller wall. Also use construction adhesive on the scabs/blocks

sorry i dont understand-why would you need to lift up a wall?
Everywhere I have worked we build them flat on the ground, sheet them then raise them. In reno work when doing additions we will even put house-wrap on and premark the top plates for rafters before we stand them.
ohh gotcha. you mean for construction.
