Bare with me as I try and word these questions and ask them the best I can. I have concrete block for walls. There will be sill plate sitting on top of the block for the trusses to sit on. There will be a concrete pad floor poured. My question is to be able to determine where the top of the pad will be pored then shouldnt I measure from where the top of the sill plate is (where the trusses sit)? If I measure from the top of the sill plate just where the trusses sit on them down exactly 8' then that is where the concrete pad should be poured to...correct ?
I want my walls and drywall to come out good without cutting as much (if possible)
Wouldnt I be attaching the top side of the drywall to the "side" of the 2X4 that is straight across and horizontally even with the sill plate sitting on the block ?
For my walls I know there would be a treated 2X4 on the concrete and I believe a 2X4 nailed to the bottom of the trusses just even across from the sill plate (?) and I believe they sell 2X4's that are 92 5/8" long that wouls fit in between these two boards but I want to make sure I have the correct 8' distance from top to bottom.
Does is sound like Im on the right track
