Hi this is Jon on behalf of Expert Village in this video clip we would be installing our partition sides. Now when I just place that partition piece in here I notice that it comes flushed with the front and it comes flushed with the back. However I'm going to be putting a 1/2 inch sheet of plywood on the back which I'm going to put in but to make it a little bit easier I'm just going to cut a 1/4 inch off the back side of this so I can have one full sheet extend all the way across the back and not have to put little sections. This is going to save me a lot of work at the end. What I have done is measured my entire length from the inside of the inside, I have subtracted that width of my partitions and then I calculated out how much each section is going to be and each measurement is 1 foot 9 and 13 1/16. So I'm going to go ahead and mark my lines. Next I'm going to glue it and then set it in place, and pin nail it.
