How do you measure a wall angle?

In framing a wall, you will sometimes find it necessary to build walls that use advanced framing techniques such as wall angles. To accomplish this, you will be required to know how to measure a wall angle using basic geometry. Here's how to do it:

Calculating Wall Angle Length

To calculate the wall angle length you will need to determine the difference between the wall's short side height and the wall's long side height. Use the Pythagorean formula, A2 +B2=C2.  Square the length of the wall base. Square the side wall height differences. Add these figures and determine the square root of the sum of figures added.
