Wall framing bowed.
It's time for painting the master b/r. I noticed that a bedroom wall is bulging.
The framing seems to have one stud that's not in line with th others. If I lay a yardstick on the sheetrock on one side of the stud, there's a gap of one inch on the other side. To further confuse things, on the other side of the wall (in a bathroom) there is no depression in that wall, AND the sheetrock seems to be tight against the same stud
The floor molding is also bowed, which to me sounds like the framing was not straight, and it's not just a matter of the one stud being out of kilter. Any suggestions?
