Easiest way to frame interior walls on slab
I am building a house with double wall construction. Exterior 2×6 wall is framed. It is a slab on grade home and there is some unevenness in the floor. Trusses will be delivered soon and I worry about having interior non-bearing walls sticking up too high and causing problems for trusses that are designed to span from exterior to exterior….no interior bearing walls.
1) Frame all the interior walls a bit shorter and frame interior walls before setting trusses
2) Frame with the standard 9 foot trusses and notch the tops of the studs that are too high where the trusses will cross.
3) Set the trusses first, and frame interior walls later
Thanks for any help or suggestions you may have!
