The wall can swing from vertical to 60 degrees overhanging.  There are three ropes attached to the top of the wall that are in line with the hinges at the base.  This transfers the load through the structure. Even on the most dynamic moves there is no wall flex.  I started the screws with a tap of the hammer then used the impact gun to drive them home.  2x4 studs on 24" centers made an excellent wall with no flex, even at a 45 degree angle.  It is best to use full sheets of plywood for many reasons.  Simple, less waist, cheaper and you can always add volumes later for more variety.  The bottom place is attached to the floor with three hinges so this wall had to be framed up in place.   Angle brackets were used to frame up the wall to give each stud much move strength than toe nailing.  It also made it easy to frame the wall in place due to the small size of the room. 16'x12'
