Micro housers ,up date and addendum to yesterdays post.I received feedback that this looks to be an advanced carpentry post for some that have no or little experience. So I thought I would deconstruct the project a little farther. In this series of photos I will lay out the lumber to build this wall and explain as I go . There is a video up on my you tube channel to go with this post as well .It is #8 and a bonus #7 shows the difference in framing a door versus a window. Let me know if this helps.If you want to build this wall in your house or practice with it I will give you all the measurements. first shot shows top and bottom plates on the floor 89 inches.
the upper cripples are 10 inches above the header.
I f you sheet first let the sheets overhang on the sides 3 1/2 inches to cover the ends of the side walls. Here is the difference between a window frame and a door frame no sill plate and no lower cripples. Just frame to the dimensions of the door you put in one inch over just like the window.
There you have it the recipe for how to make a wall . Now micro housers your homework assignment is go get the lumber (this wall cost about $45 to $50 ) and build your own wall. Have fun.
