17B build pictures

I'm looking for build pictures of a 17B, specifically the wall framing. I'd like to understand how the walls are constructed so I can make a decision about any wall reinforcement. Thank you.

The It’s Friday thread is your best bet. These links will take you to some early build pics of a 17B. Work forward from post #963 and maybe you’ll find some more…

Also, be aware that there's been a huge number of past discussions about to reinforce or not to reinforce.

Many of us have hung TVs etc. in various locations on walls that weren't reinforced. I'm not a great fan of adding extra weight on spec.

If you have an idea of hanging something specific somewhere post it. Others may have done something similar on an basic wall.

I agree Ron. The added weight to reinforce all walls in a 21 comes in around 175# according to Escape. Some might think that isn’t much but that’s almost the equivalent of two rooftop air conditioners. I could see maybe a wall or two strategically reinforced but to get all walls done blindly seems kind of silly.
