What size metal studs should I be using in basement framing? ?


I need to frame an 8 ft' long non-load bearing wall in my basement. I will be using metal studs. This wall is for a tiny powder room and every inch I can save matters. This will be a solid wall with no door in it. The metal studs along my foundation wall are 2 1/2" and the interior walls are 3 5/8". Is it appropriate to use the smaller studs here?
