Does framing a wall require more than one person? Does framing a wall require more than one person?
In framing a wall, both measuring and attaching your wall studs and plates will need to be precise. Typically, you need both hands to measure and drive nails. To hold the wall stud in place while you're doing this, you'll need a helper. Framing a wall properly in your house, especially an exterior wall, can be critical, because this wall will likely bear a sizeable weight. In addition, each wall must be straight and plumb, because it will connect to other walls of your house, and will often determine if they will also be straight and plumb.
