Good Morning.

We are currently in the middle of a house extension, we have asked our builders to do the brick build and then we are going to do all of the finishing ourselves (or with help of family). If we cant do anything then we have the option to pay the builders a day rate.

The builders are temporarily on another job, as we are waiting for our roofer to finish before they can/will come back.

We would like to start progressing our finishing or at least doing as much as we can whilst they are off-site as we are desperate to move on now.

My question is :)

On the first floor we are putting in a stud wall between what will be a bedroom and a bathroom. Ideally we dont want to start laying the flooring until the electrics and pipe work and plumbing has been done, so the flooring (chipboard) is in situ but not fixed.

Can we put the stud wall up before we lay the flooring (extra noggins have been put into place where the stud will go) or should we wait until we lay the floor and then the stud on top of that?

Im hoping its the former? But welcome expert advice.

Thanks Lou

put your studding up first and then floor each room separately, noggin out for the flooring and not the studding so that you will have enough fixings across each board.
