Hello! Could someone give me some advice on how to build the knee wall for a sunrrom. I have a lanai off the side of the house and want to convert to a sunroom.

Thank you

Knee wall construction is pretty simple and straight forward. Top and bottom plates, 2X4 studs at 16" O.C., exterior and interior finish, etc.

But define (and describe) what you mean by "lanai". I am assuming that this is a secondstory deck. Before you start adding walls to that, ESPECIALLY in an area where you have hurricanes, check with your locacal bldg. dept. The wind loads for a deck are one thing. But adding walls and a roof to it is going to change EVERYTHING that is required to meet code.
