I’m involved in commercial and some residential construction but never as a framer so forgive my simpleton question: When laying out the top and bottom plates for interior or exterior walls, I am assuming that taking into consideration sheathing or sheetrock layout (i.e. where an 8 foot sheet ends over a stud) is considered for stud placement besides the normal 16 or 24″ o.c. So does the exterior sheathing layout govern or the interior? In case I am not clear, take for example framing from a corner down a long wall. The exterior sheathing starts at the outside corner but the interior sheetrock starts at the inside corner. It is time, I’m sure, to buy one of the framing books often recommended here, but I have been racking my brain this weekend on how to do this for some minor framing that is going on in my own building.
Does this vary for wood framing vs. light guage steel?
Thanks for the help.
