    "1 way to do that is with string lines, set the lines where the walls are to go and you can measure off the lines.

    Hope that helps"

    "It depends if you’re pulling into a square corner. If so set out your square walls and pull a line into your irregular corner. If none str square simply pull a line from point to point.Hope this helps."

    "Pegs and string lines is an easy way. Doing it this way you can tweak the lines until you are happy with your angles. If you're wanting to match exiting work you can make timber templates then use them to transfer that angle to your new walls."
