Framing a Basement
Due to my room restriction, for framing walls, I had to install the top and bottom plates first, then install the vertical wall framing stud by stud. I first ran a 2X4 as the top plate and attached it to the joists. I then dropped a plumb from this top plate to the floor at several places and marked on the concrete floor my plumb points to which I installed my bottom plate. This should be dead on correct? I thought so.
However, I then proceeded to install my studs one by one. However, every so often, I would take my level and position it along a horizontal plane from stud to stud, and it rocks...meaning something is off ??? !!! I have a long level that can span 3 studs. Can anyone help with what may be occurring? Is this normal??
