I am planning to add a new 1/2 bath to main floor of my house. I am leaning towards metal studs. But I have the following two questions before I start:
2 of the 3 bath walls I will be framing will run parallel to ceiling joists. The third wall is perpendicular, and 4th already exists. Can I just attach the two parallel walls to subfloor and drywall? These are both non-load bearing
I could frame the 2nd parallel wall 10 inches further out to align it with a floor/ceiling joist, but this is also the wall where the toilet plumbing will be. Would it cause any issues for the plumber later to have this wall directly on top of floor joist?
