I know this sounds funny, but I was just measuring for framing, for a
room downstairs....I noticed the builders used 1 1/2" by 3 1/2"
for the frames is this the standard 2 x 4? Or is this the correct
measurement? I need to know as I will be adding a few feet
of frame to the existing frame as it is.
Second question....Is it ok to pack insulation around the brass pipes
that circulate my hot water to the baseboard heaters? Will need to
do this if ok before slapping up drywall on the ceiling. Thanks
Boards are known by their Nominal Dimensions.
The Actual Dimensions have been reduced a couple of times in my memory.
What you have is a typeical 2x4 stud wall.
Insulating around your pipes is o.k.
