Re: WOOD - Stud Wall Splice

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Advise that you remove the wall and do it as you detailed for the following
reasons:

the wall will never be stiff enough no matter how sharp your pencil is and
there will most likely be a horizontal crack or bend in the finished wall at
some point in time.  The owner will no doubt not appreciate this and you of
course will be held responsible for the situation because you are the
"expert".
