Light Frame Construction

  • From 1/8" per 8' to 1" per 8' for verticalness - [1], with the tighter value for plaster or gypsum work.
  • 1/4" per 8' for horizontal, with tighter tolerance for gypsum wallboard (drywall). Any 2 adjacent framing members can't be more than 1/8" off. If we use panels, then 1/8" per 4' means 1" over 32 feet.
