End of the wall


I'm putting a small half bath in my basement, and the wall butts up against a concrete wall that is not getting finished. What's the best way to finish that intersection off?

That wall along the exterier wall should have been finished long before the interier walls went up.
There has to be at least 500 post on the proper want to finish out a basement on this site.

The rest isn't ever getting finished.......hence my question. It used to just have a toilet next to a wall. I'm putting up a small half bath just so your not sitting on the can in the middle of the room

You could just tapcon a treated stud or a regular stud with sillseal behind it to the wall.
Or leave it just not touching and fasten just to the top and bottom plates of your new wall.

Are you talking about how to finish the drywall edge?
Either a flat moulding like door stop or a burlap mould or similar.
Or they make a J channel that you slip the drywall into then mud.

My first thoughts exactly-if you are talking about finishing it cosmetically. Either wood trim or plastic J channel made for drywall can be picked up for a couple bucks at any hardware store.

The J channel would slip onto the edge of the drywall before you fasten it, so if you already have it boarded tight to the concrete and mudded this option might be a bit more difficult.

You can use plastic trim that you tape or you can use j-trim that does not get taped and than chaulk it where it meets the wall.Or you can just flat tape againist the wall.Or just leave your drywall about 1/4" short with a nice cut and just chaulk it.Whatever you do dont let the drywall touch the concrete.

Sounds good. Guess I'll pull the sheet back off the wall and pick up some j channel. Glad I didn't mud yet.
