I have a question about the proper way to provide temporary support when reframing a load-bearing wall. I have a small Cape; my plan calls for reframing portions of the non-gable end walls...apologies for my lack of terminology!...the walls that make up the front and back walls of the house.
How do I build a temporary wall next to the existing framed wall to carry the load while I remove and replace the framing? How does the temporary structure attach to the house?
Thanks for your time and any possible guidance.
