I saw a few posts that touched on furring concrete for drywall, and a few about drywall along stairs, but nothing that hit my specific questions.
ref: picture below.
I have basement stairs, most of which but against a concrete wall, the upper few stairs against an interior first floor wall.
What size lumber should I use to fur, and what width drywall should I use to achieve the best finish along the stairs?
If I fur with 1x, I would think that would end up with an awkward overhang of drywall over the stringer, then how would I finish the stairs (specifically the exposed stringer)? Or, I could fur out using 2x to match the width of my stringer, but then I would end up needing to cut drywall to match the steps, which sounds painful.
Any suggestions are welcome, thanks in advance!
