  • Adding a partition wall to a room using 2x2

    Hi, I'm a newbie on DIY and I want to add a wall in a room that I'm going to place in AC. Will a 2x2 wood stud do for hardiflex? I'm looking at some tutorials and all of them said 2x4's but I'd really want to save space as much as possible.

        Bro, using 2 X 2 has less strength or rigidity compared to a 2 X 3 or 2 X 4 wood
        frame partition, actually you won't get the exact size of the 2 X 3s or the 2 X 4s if
        you prefer the S/S. Lauan or mahogany will just be fine since they will just be
        covered with Hardiflex or your desired paneling.

          the wall will be just a partition and won't be load bearing. I'm hoping to save space as much as possible. I'll probably using the cheapest wood I can find too, thanks!

            Hello, sorry if hijack ko yung thread. But, tanong ko lang sana ano pa po ba ang magandang gamitin for ceiling ginamitan namin ng metal framing. Pero nabadtrip na ako masyado sa pag lagay ng gypsum board- palaging napupuwing. Viable din ba ang hardi para sa ceiling or mag marine plywood nalang?

              Lagay ka lang ng safety glasses or face shield puede na.

              Reliable din ang Hardiflex, waterproof, fireproof and termite proof compared sa
              marine plywood which is not fireproof nor termite proof.



              Hope this helps,

                Hello to all PHM members. It's nice to be back after a long vacation. I agree with our friend Rosy's take on FICEMBOARD as an alternative material for ceiling panel. However pls. note that you may need to increase your frame support as the weight of Ficemboard ranges from about 3.5 to 4 kilos per mm thickness depending on the brand you use but take this reference weight as a safe gauge just as well.

                Hope this helps.
