I'm starting to frame a small house. For background, the foundation is 2x12 sills bolted to pilings, then 2x8 joists and 3/4" plywood.
My question is about squaring the walls if they are sheathed while flat before raising. I'm reading Larry Haun's The Very Efficient Carpenter. He spends a few pages on the importance of plumbing and lining walls after they are raised, before sheathing.
If I sheath before raising, how to square? My first thought is to simply pull diagonal measurements and make them equal before sheathing. Then sheathing, raising with jacks, and hoping the sheathed wall stays square. Not sure how to line a sheathed wall, as it should be fairly rigid.
