Building and designing interior walls

A home's interior is defined as much by the style and position of walls as by their colour and design. Walls are important not only as a structural feature but also for controlling heat and providing privacy. Regardless of their purpose or design, interior walls require a strong interior framework and adequate sheathing for the finished surface. This could be drywall, wood panelling and even stone or brickwork. Whether the framing is built with wood, metal or even plastic, wall construction involves different techniques. This article provides smart advice on how to quickly complete your project.
