Framing a Corner

This story explains how to frame the corner of a wall.

Wall construction involves inside/outside corners as well as T-walls. The drawings present strategies for framing these junctions in both wood and steel.

If you choose the assembly shown in the T-wall drawing, the blocking can be a full-length stud or you can substitute short pieces of stud material, a strategy that saves money and also helps scraps disappear. If you're attaching your new wall to an outside wall, insulate any cavities between the blocking before attaching the second wall.
