Framing doorways - need to increase jack stud height
Im framing 7 doorways in my gut reno project.
Its all metal stud framing in a residential home with 10 ceilings.
Initially I was planning on 80 doors but after I put a couple up I decided 96 doors is the way to go.
Unfortunately I bought quite a few 8 2x4s for my jack studs. Can I just add a 2 1/2 piece of 2x4 to go from a 96 rough opening to 98 1/2 ? Or is there a big advantage of having on continuous piece of wood as my jack stud?
Ill secure the added piece with screws to the king stud.
