How to Frame Walls: Pony Walls & Boxes, Knee Walls

August 11 @ 9:00 am 11:00 am CDT

IDK what they’re measuring here, but it’s not 16″ on center.

You’re going to learn how to frame with builder studs and a nail gun with a compressor. We might hit one or two with a hammer, too. There are a lot of conditions and connection points to think about when you want to add a wall (or part of one) to your home.

We’re not talking about anything load-bearing or a wall you’ll need a permit for here. We’re talking about a decorative 4′ wall behind some cabinets for an island, or a little separation in a laundry room. We will show you how to make a full wall from floor to ceiling and everything you need to think about before you go buy some lumber.

Then we will learn how to build pony wall together and talk about the different ways to secure and finish it.

You will learn:

  • The tools and materials you need to do the best job
  • How to frame out a basic wall
  • How to cut and measure to get the end result you want
  • How to mount your wall to the floor or adjoining wall

Supplies Needed:

All supplies for the class will be provided for you, including safety gear.
