quick paneling

Hello everyone,

I have a wall that is 12' by 5' high that is made of 2 by 4 studs. What is the quickest way to finish this wall. I am thinking just white paneling with a type of corner molding for the sides. Everything would be prefinished.

Thanks

Are you saying the wall is 12' long and 5' high or the other way around?

12' long and 5' high. So it is a unique wall.

What's the reasoning for the quickest way? I finish my walls with drywall, so I'm trying to figure out why that may not be an option for you.

Is this a half wall? or a short attic wall? something else?

I see. It is a wall that separates countertops on both sides; so that a person or people can work on both sides. The wall might be moved latter as well. Not sure were it will end up in the future. I essentially plan on attaching it to the cabinetry so that the whole thing, cabinetry and wall, can move were we want it. It is a half wall then. I hope I did a good job explaining to you.

Thanks

I'm having a hard time grasping the mobile part of the wall. I suspect you'd need something stouter than paneling or drywall - maybe plywood.

Mark, the OP says the wall has 2x4 studs.

Use paneling as you planned. Install vertically so the paneling edges will meet on a stud. You will waste 3 feet of each of the three 8 foot panels.

What you have is called a pony wall.
Pony walls and Peninsula Cabinet backs are very often finished just the way you plan.
Add covering to the backs, finish the corners with 3/4" or 1" corner molding and finish the bottom edges with 3/4" corner round.
You also might need what is called Batten Molding to cover the middle panel seams.

I now agree with not using drywall
