One more thought....

In reply to New wall weight by Steve: on October 15th, 2000 11:52 AM [Go to top of thread]

Normally when a new wall is installed, the wall is 1/4 or so higher than the wall height. this is to make the wall nice and tight. On your situation, I would not do this. I would cut it to the height of the wall and then nail it in place.

My reasoning is that too much force could bow the flooring if the wall is between two floor joists.
