I'm building a very simple wall, it will have one door in it, I want to use steel studs, mainly because they are about the same price as 2x4s here, and they go up easy and quick, as well as straight, and because they do not burn! Really you should see the poor quality 2x4s we have been getting recently here, they are really bad, hockey stick like, and expensive.
Anyone with any experience framing a wall with steel studs?
NOT load bearing, just enclosing a space in our parking area to use as storage for my new business.
From what I understand you just put the channel top and bottom and then cut the studs to fit, and screw them in place, fairly simple no?
Double up on each side of the door and over the top of the door too?
I've never done steel studs, seen it done, worked around it while it was being done, but I've never done it.
Tips, or links etc would be great, I'l be showing some pics later when I have time to take some.
