We are looking to put up some pre-built cabinets to the garage (it is not finished - so the studs are exposed). However, each of the cabinets is 23 lbs and of course, once we start storing things in those, they will be even more heavy. I want to strengthen the studs before we finish the garage with drywall. What is the best way ?
1. Should I add another another stud for every stud there is, or
2. Should I add diagonal elements (like a truss)
Which gives me most strength?
Thanks for reading.
