|Adjustable chain wall construction|
|This adjustable wall is built under a car port. The wall angle can vary from vertical to a 60 degree overhang using chain.|
|Wall construction is very simple. Plywood is screwed directly to studs.
Normally for a wall where the frame is not directly attached to a solid suport, 2x6's are prefered for framework. In this case, 2x4's enable the wall to hinge easier because the wall section is thin like a door (not thick like a bank vault).
To keep the wall stiff without using 2x6's, the stud frame uses lots of 2x4 vertical studs (6 for a 6 foot wide wall).
|Chain attached to eyebolts with chain link connectors is used to adjust the angle.|
|Carabiners can be used but 5/16" screw link connecters are cheaper.
Eyebolts are bolted on through holes drilled in studs
|To maximize climbing height, plywood at the top of the wall is cut to allow passage for the car port roof studs as the wall angle is changed. A lot of work perhaps for 6 inches of climbing height.
The horizontal stud topping the center vertical studs is just below this cut.
|Wall at a shallow angle. The bottom of the wall is not attached to a hinge or anything, just resting on ground against house wall. As long as the angle is overhanging, even just a little, the bottom will stay in place.|
|Same wall, just a lot steeper.|
