Where are you doing this? The mountain place or the home in Winston? I'll come over and you can use my framing nailer.

I would think that a purely placement wall (as opposed to a structural support wall) would be adequately served with screws instead of nails. I will gladly stand corrected if someone offers a sound reason to the contrary, but if a wall’s only purpose is to divide a huge basement into several areas or if a main living area wall bears no structural weight, then why would screws not be adequate? -------- Holland's Person, Bill - "The biggest seller is cookbooks and the second is diet books - how not to eat what you've just learned how to cook." - Andy Rooney - Personal Note: Thought this an appropriate quote after the Holiday splurging!
