    What's the best way to build the wall on the right out 20cm so that its inline with the perpendicular wall at the back. I'd like to then hang a door, sealing off the space on the right.

    you can see the difference with the gap in the floor.

    Should I make an actual stud partition, or just screw 3 timbers side by side?

    With a stud partition the noggins would only be a few cm across

    200mm is 2x 4x2 and then a top and sole plate and a noggin or two. You won't do it with just three timbers without messing about trying to pack one of them out.

    A sole and top plate will allow you to secure the top and bottom too.
