Can you frame a wall in sections?
When you layout your studs, put a stud at each end of both 12′ sections. Once you raise the walls, nail the two studs in the center (at the end of the wall sections) to each other. Run the top top-plate at least 2 feet onto either wall.
How long should wall sections be?
Most framers around here use 16′ long lumber for top and bottom plates, so you should have a natural break at 16′, another at 32′, and another 8′ section. The second top plate should not break at the same point as the first top plate.
How do you make a wall longer than 8 feet?
A continuous top and bottom plate are preferred, and longer 2×4 or 2×6’s are available for this. If you need to breakup the wall, then make two separate walls and nail them together, to the floor, and with a staggered top plate. When possible, you want to end the wall near a corner to give the joint more support.
What is a California corner?
A California Corner is a framing corner built with three studs. Two studs are perpendicular, ending two walls, with another stud staggered against the wall ending inside the wall. This allows for insulation to go along the back side of the corner and it also allows for drywall to attach to both sides of the corner.

How do you find the length of a short wall?
Length of Long Wall = Center to Center Length of wall + Half Breadth on One Side + Half Breadth on the Other Side For finding out length of short wall or cross wall subtract from the centre length, so the one breadth of the wall, which gives the length of the short wall (in-to-in) (instead of adding).
What is included in a wall section package?

What is the difference between long wall and short wall?
For measuring the long wall and short wall the external out-to-out length of walls running in the longitudinal direction generally is considered as “long wall” while the in-to-in internal length of walls running in the transverse direction is called as “short wall” or “cross wall”.
