installing interior framed walls
I have a small basement less than 500sq ft and have layed the subfloor, Platon by Armtec. I have the concrete exterior walls insulated with styrofoam and the framing done along the exterior which is screwed into the concrete floor.
The floor slopes about 3 inches from the outside wall to the center where the drain is. I want to add 3/4 inch plywood atop the Platon subfloor and then carpet. I plan on shimming the plywood floor to level the floor. By doing this the concrete floor will have a slope but the interior floor will be level. So there will be a gap between the Platon subfloor and the plywood floor.
My question is should I lay the plywood floor first and then attach the inside wall studs to the plywood? Screwing the floor studs to the plywood not into the concrete.
Or should I install the interior wall studs from ceiling to the subfloor, ie concrete, and the plywood floor would be still shimmed until level up against these walls.
