I am looking to remodel a bathroom that would require framing a 5 foot interior wall. The bathroom in a second floor addition with an 8' ceiling that slopes down to a 4' knee wall. The wall will be within and run parallel to the slope (no joists). Would I rotate the top plate to lay flush with the pitch or cut an angled strip to square up the top plate or are neither of these good ideas.

Thank you

Typically the studs are angled and the top plate is too.

Ripping an angled filler could work but sound like a lot of extra work.---Mike---

That's what I was thinking I'd need to do. But on the off chance that I can get ahold a table saw I think I'll try ripping that angle to simplify the rest of the cuts if it's not considered bad practice

That's ideal---however the top plate will need to be cut from a 2x6 as an angled 2x4 won't be as wide as the studs.
