How to Timber stud walls

Stud walls generally have spacings of 450 to 600mm measuring from centre of stud to centre, or from in to over edge of stud to edge of stud. 1 row of noggins is required for walls under 2.7m high. Higher walls need 2 rows or more depending on the height of the wall itself.

Keeping your bottom plate and top plates straight is the key to keeping your wall nice and straight and having the plates plumb in position keeps your studs nice and vertical with no winding. For bowed studs, Studs can be crippled where necessary and cleated.

Structural stud walls need to be built by licensed structural carpenters. Sydney Wide Carpenters For partition walls structural walls, wall removal widened openings block off openings and wall repairs.

 

 

Most designed stud wall framing for housing are generally designed with wind load, structural loads, live loads and roof load to determine what size studs are to be used and stud spacings they should be.

 

Window openings

Any window opening in a stud wall will require a head lintel beam.

Any sectional size window lintels should be determined by the timber framing code of australia for its specified size requirments. All factors like the stud sizes are taken into consideration,  wind load, structural loads, live loads and roof load two storey or single storey.

 

Door openings

door openings to timber framing are determined from the size of door

required, Doors are manufactured to standard sizes, the most common being 820 and 720 wide by 2040 high. To determine you frame opening width you must first have you door size (say 820) and the thickness of the door jamb rebate you are using (say 18mm) Once you have this you can calculate 820 plus 18mm plus 18mm and clearance behind the jamb to allow for plumbing of your jamb.

So in this case for a standard 820 door your frame opening will be around the 865mm mark, keeping in mind you need a few mm of clearance in between your door edge and jamb rebate.
