I am tearing out a 30 foot long wall in my house, putting in a double sliding door and two windows. The original wall has two large windows and a door, built with 2x4 studs. Everything is going to go, siding, interior paneling and all the doors and glass. My plan was to rip some strips of 2xs and add them to the 2x4 studs to bring them to 2x6 dimensions. Others tell me to just tear the wall down and re-frame with 2x6 from the get go. What do the experts here suggest? I have windows, patio door (and extension jams) purchased and waiting for warmer weather. Anderson 400 series.
