Wall Framing 101

Welcome back! This weeks project is interior wall framing. In this case it is a basement finish project. however, the same could be applied to any non load bearing partition walls. I purposely only used the minimum tools required to show that this type of project does not require many tools, and off those, many are relatively inexpensive with the exception of the framing nailer, which could be rented from your local equipment rental store.
