First determine your wall length and cut your top and bottom plates. Lay the timber side by side and measure them together.
Cut your studs, allowing 90mm for the top and bottom plates (45mm + 45mm)
Pre-cut your noggins into 450mm lengths.
Position the studs between the plates at a distance of 450mm. Use the set square to ensure they are at right-angles. Then skew-nail or screw to secure the studs.
Position the noggins halfway down the studs in staggered order, then nail in place.
Stand your frame upright and use the spirit-level to ensure it's perfectly vertical. Then secure tot he floor and ceiling joists,
Measure then score and cut your plasterboard sheets so they join over the center of a stud.
Apply stud adhesive to the faces of the studs and noggins to hold the plasterboard secure. You should also screw or nail the plasterboard in place to ensure it remains firmly affixed to the frame.
Cover any joins between plasterboard sheets with CSR Plaster tape.
That's it. Your stud wall is ready to be plastered and painted. Watch for more useful fact sheets in coming weeks.
