Frame Wall Construction
A wall is usually constructed on the subfloor since it provides a large, flat work surface.
An entire wall panel may be built as a unit or may be built in sections.
Exterior frame walls may be flush with the outside of the foundation wall or moved 1/2" to 3/4" inside for sheathing.
