All of these need to be "boxed in" and enclosed with drywall, paneling or bead board. Today I began installing the studs to which the wall material will be attached. I finished framing in the bedroom and living room corners. And I got a good start on the laundry room walls. Below are pictures of some real studs......
|Simple stud work in west downstairs bedroom.|
We'll probably cover this with bead board to match adjoining walls.
|Slightly more complex stud work in the living room.|
I'll cover this area with paneling that was removed from the south wall.
|The duct work that needs to be enclosed.|
[Sorry about the ladder in the picture.]
|The framing for the new south wall of our new laundry area.|
There will be a small wall with the basement door where the blue tape is on the floor.
|Ten foot 2x4s were easily cut to the the nine foot plus length|
that was needed in my makeshift basement shop.
