# How To Build Partition Wall With Suspended Ceiling

I have decided to build a partition wall with suspended ceiling in my garage to make another room. So, I decided to write a guide on how to build partition wall with suspended ceiling step by step. Below are the steps I took and you can follow them too

## Step by step guide on how to build partition wall with suspended ceiling.

• Calculate the amount of materials you need
• Fasten a top plate at the end of the upper side of the wall
• Fasten the plate down on the floor

## Calculate the amount of materials needed.

• Measure the length and width of your wall, adding 10% to each dimension to allow for waste.
• Calculate the number of 2×4 studs needed by dividing your square footage by 144 (the number of square feet in an 8’x8′ sheet).
• Calculate the number of 2×2 blocking studs needed by dividing your square footage by 90 (the number of square feet in a 4’x8′ sheet).
• -5.: Purchase these materials based on this information

## Fasten a top plate at the end of the upper side of the wall.

Fasten the top plate at the end of an upper side of the wall. How you fasten it depends on what is beneath it. If there are joists beneath, then drive a nail through the drywall and into each joist that supports it so that there’s one nail for every two feet of wall height. If there’s no joist, then drive a nail through two studs to make sure that both studs are secure in place before driving any nails into them. You can do this by measuring from one end of your ceiling or flooring and marking where all these supporting structures will be located (if they’re not already). You may need someone else to help lift up heavy objects like tables or chairs while you’re working; don’t forget this step. Also consider hiring someone who knows how to use tools properly so as not to hurt yourself or others accidentally–you’ll thank us later

## Fasten the plate down on the floor.

Next, fasten the plate down on the floor. Use a spirit level to make sure it’s straight. If you have an electric drill with a masonry bit, use that now to drill down through each of your studs and into the concrete below. This will help anchor them in place when attaching them later on.

If you’re not using an electric drill, you can use a hammer and chisel instead—just be careful not to damage your floor or any other surface that may be underneath!

With all these holes made, now it’s time for step two: fastening up some top plates (the thin boards above both sides). Cut them by length with your saw and fit these pieces into place before nailing them together with nails or screws wherever they meet at right angles (i.e., corners).

## Fasten another plates on the lower side of the wall.

Fasten another plates on the lower side of the wall.

Use a hammer to nail each stud in its place.

Use a screwdriver with a correct bit into joists or noggins to secure them properly.

Use an architrave around your work.

## Cut studs by the length of your partitions.

When cutting your studs, it’s crucial to use the right tools. You’ll need a saw that has enough power to cut through the wood and an adjustable blade with a sharp edge. Mark your studs with tape measures, then cut them by hand with a hacksaw. Be sure to double-check the length of each one with a tape measure, as well as its angle and squareness before assembling them into partitions.

## Measure up from the floor and mark it up on the plumb line where you will start installing studs.

Measure up from the floor and mark it up on the plumb line where you will start installing studs. Use a hammer to nail each stud into the floor and ceiling. Fasten a top plate at the end of the upper side of the wall, then cut studs by their length and fasten them on both sides with nails or screws. Fasten another plates on lower side of partitions, then install joists between them using screws or nails as needed for stability

## Position two studs at each end, with one as blocking and place them at 400mm apart on each other.

• Position two studs at each end, with one as blocking and place them at 400mm apart on each other.
• Use a hammer to nail the studs in place.
• Screw the ceiling joists into their position using a screwdriver

## Use a hammer to nail each stud in its place then tighten screws through it by using a screwdriver with a correct bit into joists or noggins to secure them properly in the correct position on the floor and ceiling.

## Use an architrave around your work. Finish it off with skirting board along base.

Use an architrave around your work. Finish it off with skirting board along base.

An architrave is a covering for a wall or other architectural element, usually made of stone, wood, or metal. It can be used to cover and decorate the entire surface of an internal wall[1] or just around the door or window frame. The term comes from the Latin words arcus (arch) and trabs (beam).

In classical architecture it is often only placed above the cornice of a building as part of a portico or façade; sometimes it has three parts: eave – cornice – frieze. In modern use in architecture one might consider using this across a room when using suspended ceilings as part of their design but generally not in interior design.

## You can build partition wall with suspended ceiling if you follow proper instructions.

First, calculate the amount of materials needed to complete the project. Next, fasten a top plate at the end of the upper side of the wall and fasten it down on floor by using shims or nails. Now, attach some metal studs to this plate using screws in a straight line across from each other and make sure that they are level with each other before screwing them into place. You should also use steel plates between these metal studs so as to provide extra support for strength purposes.

## Conclusion

Partition walls are an excellent way to divide up a room and create different spaces within the same house. They can be used for creating a separate study area, a playroom for the kids or even just as extra storage space. However, building them isn’t always easy – especially when there’s already another wall in place! You might need some help with this project.
