How do I finish this
I posted once before but did not get a clear answer. I need to finish the poured concrete wall that abuts my basement staircase. That particular wall is below my garage I can not imagine it ever having a water issue. The problem is I have no room to frame it out...the stairway is right against it. Actually, I have and inch and a half of clearance. This would be enough to attach furring strips to the concrete, put styrafoam in between and drywall over. I was not sure if its safe to affix those furring strips right to the concrete or if thats looking for trouble. Maybe the sell pt furring strips?
The only other alternative I can think of is glueing 1" xps to the concrete and glueing the drywall to the XPS....would that be secure...
