Building a Wall - Introduction

The sill plates for a garage are usually 2" x 4" pressure treated or redwood horizontal framing members that are bolted or attached by foundation anchors or anchor bolts to the foundation (or concrete slab). These are also the sole or bottom plates of the stud garage wall. The purpose of the sill plate is to anchor the garage framing to the foundation, to level the foundation wall, and to keep the untreated framing members out of contact with the concrete where standing water could cause them to rot.


Drywall - Joint Compound, Mud and Tapes

To achieve a smooth finish, all screw and nail heads must be covered with mud and seams taped over. Joint Compound or Vinyl Spackling is known as mud. We prefer to use the Vinyl Spackling because of its quick drying time of about one hour or more depending on the thickness of application.
