Here's what the bare frame looks like:
If you don't already know how a wall is hung with Genie Clips, here's the video. Skip to 2:45 to see how they're spacing the clips.
Looking at my pic above, you will see that there are no exposed studs at the opposite ends of the wall, so I am going to have to install them so that I have a place to attach the clips on either side. This is going to create a non-standard distance of 10" between the first set of studs on the left side of the wall and 9 1/2" on the right.
I am guessing that this is not going to present too much of a problem since the video never mentions a minimum distance of 16" between clips, only a maximum distance of 48".
Since this is my biggest DIY project ever, I want your input on whether or not this non-standard stud placement will affect the hanging of my new wall with Genie Clips.
A few years later, I know, but I thought I'd post a pic showing what the channels looked like after mounted onto the Genie clips. You can also see the two new studs I installed if it matters any.
