Framing Question

Measured ceiling joist to floor in my basement. Length is 8' 4". 2X4's are normally cut at 8', 10, 12, etc. for studding. Adding the bottom & top plates which total 3", I have a 1" gap to fill. Would this be the preferred way? Then how?

Or do I just buy 10' studs and cut each to size? Not preferred if I can make up 1". Sorry, this may be an easy one for the pro's but I'm a beginner.

Welcome any/all suggestions. Thanks.

Unless you had some 1/2" plywood laying around that you could rip to size.
and place one rip at the top and on at the bottom and then fit your stud's.

If I were doing it I would get the Proper length stud's and do it the right way.

Thanks Hollywood,

What about furring strips as a filler? They are about a half inch deep and the width is adequate.

I wouldn't use furring strips you want to keep it the width as your stud 1 piece.

is this just a deco wall that you are putting up?
