For wall corners I will be adding in the following additional corner treatments:
- 3 Stud Solid
- 4 Stud Solid
- 3 Stud Block
- 4 Stud Block
When the user sets the number of studs for the corner on anything other than one, that setting will override the corner treatment for the above corner treatment types. However this is not the case for the California corner (however I may change it in the future if it makes sense to).
These algorithm can get a bit complicated due to the number of permutations possible when you start mixing up corner treatments and multi-stud corners for shearwalls.
The problem I find with California Corners is that it does not provide very good backing for ext. outside corners when it comes to siding and trim. However it certainly is better for insulation and much easier on the electricians.
There does not seem to be any hard and fast rule on the length of blocks used but it seems to average between 12" to 14", so I will set my algorithm to a max. block length of 14" . So for example a 96" wall will have four blocks at 13.714".
