    Stick Framing

    I have a question about stick framing around a garage door opening. My contractor has attached extra boards on the studs (the boards with the red marks in the photo). My initial thought was they are temporary, but there are a lot of fasteners for a board that would be getting removed. So maybe it is permanent? Anyone have any ideas (my contractor apparently doesn't work Saturdays so I can't ask him today)? If these are permanent, then I will need to add extra boards to support the sheetrock.

    Just guessing, but I would suspect it is just additional support for a long span. Garage doors are pretty wide.

    These are the boards that will support the door track and torsion springs. You will NOT cover these with sheetrock, but rather but it against them.

    What Kenny said ^^^^^^^^^^

    Normally there would be 2 x 4 surrounding the door opening, but the wider surround will give the door installers an extra margin to compensate for your doors width. Yes, you may have to scab in some 2 x 4's before drywalling.

    ..thats a pretty long span especially if that is a load bearing wall.....i would be tempted to put plywood on the inside also ....but he may have put more than enough on the outside...

    patience sir....he has a ways to go before he is finished

    Looks like there is a header there that has been furred out. Could be adequate but without knowing all the details it is just guessing!

    Thanks! I just went out to my house garage to look. They finished these boards with white metal trim. I never noticed it before. It’s the little things, like these additional boards to support the doors, that I didn’t even consider doing the framing myself!

    I don’t think the plywood would add any structural benefit in this case.

    As a structural engineer I am finding it very difficult to leave my response that short and not elaborate. I just don’t want to type out an explanation that nobody gives a flying &%@$ about. I am happy to go into more detail if there is interest (hell i might in disprove my own theory as I am trying to explain it)

    No need to expand your response to my simple statement of opinion.........I am a PE and Owned a C/I Design build firm for 30yrs now retired so i dont think your going to over detail me but it wasnt intended to be more than a simple observation and statement based on a single picture
