Building a tack room: ?s on wall construction
Getting ready to build out my new tack room in the barn, and I'm curious what others have done in terms of the walls' underlying construction and facing material. I want to be able to have lots of racks, shelves etc on the walls, and it seems like the standard stud spacing of 16" centers would restrict my flexibility in this regard. In a small space you need as much flexibility as you can get.
I'm planning on just using plywood for the wall face, and I think screws in the plywood will get loose and pull out over time if theres' no stud behind it.
So, I'm wondering if I maybe do twice as many studs -- for a small space it's not like the additional 2x4s will cost much. Or just standard spacing and use anchor type screws-- think they'll be good enough for the long term?
Any other options I'm not thinking of?
