Wall Infill At a Removed Door and Frame often occurs as part of a remodeling project. The older the existing construction the less likely that the wall thickness matches modern construction. In order to avoid lumps or depressions in the finished wall, a detail like this is needed to match the thickness of the existing. The key to the detail is the split studs which the contractor will have to construct from ripped studs. Where the existing wall is thicker than normal, two rows of staggered studs can make up the thickness. Although this detail is labor intensive, there rarely are very many places where it will be needed. This concept applies to wood stud construction too.
- This detail is needed to clarify the end results required for the door infill.
- This detail should be placed on the detail sheets, the A500 or AE500 series of sheets per the National CAD Standards.
