I live in Canada.
I was wondering what are the common construction code points to consider on this one?
- Materials - does it matter if this is just a seat and not a bearing wall, I was planing 2x4s from Home Depot.
- Screws vs Nails - I was thinking screws with pre-drilling.
- Framing - should I follow the spacing guidelines for the wood frame or as long as it's sturdy it's all that matters?
Electrical Heating Element
I also have an electrical heating element attached to the wall right where the seat will go, so I was thinking to move it onto the face of the seat once completed. Is there any specific plating that has to be installed to drywall?
