Wall frames are more economical, and decreases time spent on the job (less cost to construct)

I have been told I should notch my wall frames do I need to?
No it is no longer required due to the advances in the building and timber industries.
Notching was used to stop the twist in timber created from green (wet) timber.
At Able Truss as we use Kiln dried pine we do not have this problem.

What timber do you use in wall frames?
Min 90x35MGP10 & 90x45MGP10
