How To: Frame a wall 16 inch out on a subwall

Frame a wall 16 inch out on a subwall

In this tutorial, we learn how to frame a wall 16 inch out on a subwall with Bob Schmidt. First, grab some straight plates for the top and bottom plates of the wall. Then, you will need a framing square as well. When doing a layout for the wall, you will first need to lay the plates next to each other. Then, find the red marks at the typical wall stud layout. Go ahead and make your first mark at 3 quarters back from every red stud mark. Then, place the framing square on the wood and line it up on your first mark over both of the squares. Put an "X" in between both of them, then you know where the wall framing stud needs to be placed.
