I am currently remodeling an open loft area into a bedroom.
Currently there is just an opening and I am going to be building an interior wall with two converging pocket doors.
For pocket doors I am going to be using Johnson hardware 1500SC kits with split steel studs.
Total header height needs to be 12 inches over a 10' span. I will use two 2x4 jack studs that the header will rest upon.
From what I have read I need to use sandwiched 2x10 for 10 foot span. Should I go with that?
Can I use 2x4 bottom plate, sandwiched 2x8, cripple studs, and a 2x4 top plate?
