Another panel erected last night:
One of the studs happens to line up with our internal wall almost perfectly, so we've used this to our advantage and put up the temporary diagonal bracing piece by simply nailing it to the side of the sole plate for the internal wall. It is worth noting that this is fine for restraint to the wall as it stands, but if we were to put up even one OSB board we would need three nails into one of the metal angle brackets bolted into the concrete to provide sufficient restraint. Some of the calculations I do really are dull!
