Measuring and cutting of the studs

Marking out of studs and doorways
Transfer the dimensions of where the door openings will be positioned from the floor plan and mark onto the head and base rails using the tape and pencil, starting from where two wall meet mark on the head and base rail where the stud will be positioned at the centers specified in the specification.
Assembling the stud wall frames
Put the head and base rail on the floor at around the length of the studs apart, place the studs in between the head and base rail and to the marks for the door openings and positions of the studs, pull a stud tight up to the head and fix using the nail gun, repeat this sequence on all the required studs that are fixed to the head, follow the same sequence when fixing the studs to the base rail.
Fixing the stud frames in place
With the stud wall frame in an upright position place the base rail on the marking on the floor from the setting out stage, fix the base rail into the floor using the nail gun, plumb up the stud wall frame using the spirit level and fix the head into the underside of the ceiling, follow the same sequence for all of the stud wall frames.
