Basement - Floors before Framing?

aehmannFebruary 17, 2012

We are planning on remodeling our unfinished basement next year, but I want to put the flooring in now so the kids can play downstairs.

Is this going to cause any issues with framing in the walls later on?

Non-loading bearing stud walls can be installed on top of Delta FL (or equivalent), DRIcore (or equivalent) and XPS/ply.

Actually the plywood subfloor is already down. We have a crawl space underneath that.

I was hoping to put a solid wood pine flooring down.

In that case I would nail the base plate of the future walls to the subfloor & then put the flooring down.
