I'm about to began to finish my basement. When it comes to framing, should I attach the 2x4's directly to the concrete walls or should I use strips.
I always frame the wall about an inch or inch and a half away from the concrete wall.
In many areas, fire-blocking every 10' lineally is required in any closed chase wall:http://publicecodes.citation.com/ico...002_par031.htm

Sill sealer under p.t. (required) plate, ADA the drywall, seal rims first, no gap at walls for insulation convective loops: http://www.buildingscience.com/docum...wall-approach/
