Hi Ron

First off Ron,I'd image w/a 14' wall your gonna want to run your drywall horizontally up the wall,right?O.k that being the could not use off the shelf metal studs anyway..light gauge metal studs cannot support the weight of the drywall horizontally.UNLESS you use a heavy gauge steel stud,which you should be able to get at a nearby builders supply.So to answer your question Ron,If you want to go w/ heavy gauge steel studs and try to buy them to fit full length.
