Hopefully I will soon be building a house frame from scratch and would appreciate any advice forthcoming.
To start with, I have 2 problems - I am using 140x45 members for the external walls and there will only be 2 of us building the frame.
Due to the weight of the members, I was proposing to place most of the studs when the frame section is in its finished (upright) position. I was also thinking of trenching the top and bottom plates (3 mm) to facilitate the placement of the studs and hold them in position when fixing.
Any thoughts on this would be most welcome. Thanks.
