Transcript of WALL FRAMING
Nick Feuillerat and Chris McNamara
16d Common Nails
Measure width and height of wall to be built
Preparation Is Key
Run a stud finder along the ceiling to locate it's joists.
Snap a chalk line on the joists.
Placing the Wall
Measure from a corner and measure where the new wall will meet existing wall
Lay out sole plate and drive a nail into the ceiling close to chalk line
Starting the Wall
Set the top and sole plates side by side on the floor.
Starting at one end, measure and mark the plates every 16-inches.
Mark-Up the Sole Plates
Determine the stud length by measuring the distance between the ceiling and the floor at several places.
Make sure to allow space to tilt the wall up.
Determining Stud Length
Cut Studs to Length
Measure same distance that was measured from ceiling to floor on stud.
Cut with saw.
Nail studs to bottom plate first, then to top plate.
Finally, You're Framing!
Line up walls with chalk line and tilt up.
Shim between the top plate and ceiling
Use level to check for flush
Making the Wall Flush
Check Your Work
Always check your work to make sure your wall doesn't fall and kill you!!!
Measure the area to make sure there is enough drywall to cover the area
Make sure to do 16" on center for the particular project that we are doing
Beginning to Drywall
Cut the drywall to the correct size with a drywall saw
Making the Correct Size
Screw the drywall into the joists or studs about 12 to 16 inches apart with drywall screws
Make sure to leave room for electrical boxes or other utilities
Use mud to make the wall smooth, to cover up screws, and fill creases
Make It Smooth
Tape the joints with specially made drywall tape
Re-mud the wall after a day once everything is dry
Now we wait....
Wait until second coat is done and then sand and paint the wall
Make sure electrical is done inside wall
Before You Drywall
Make sure insulation is put in the wall
Before you drywall, Pt. 2
Tools to drywall
Determine the best location for outlet
Working on Electrical
Find a location near a stud so that the outlet can be nailed in
Find an Opening
Make sure there is no other plumbing or electrical in the way of where you will place your outlet
Check your Placement
Set up the plug
Black goes with negative
White goes with positive
Ground is either green or bare, sometimes pushed to side otherwise hooked up to green painted screw
Make sure to pigtail loose wires
Otherwise you could hurt yourself
or worse: DIE
Nailing in Outlet Holder
Nail outlet holder into frame
Make sure it is tight and secure
Double Check Wiring
It is very important to always double check your work before turning electricity back on
Screwing in Wires
Make sure to insert the wire from the left
This is so the wire tightens as you screw it in
Screw outlet in
Screw outlet cover on
Test Your Work
Try to plug something in
See if it lights up
