Door threshold gap ?
I am just about done with my basement finish. Here in CO basement's require floating walls, where the entire wall is secured to, and suspended from overhead joists. There is a 2-3 inch gap at the bottom, which allows the foundation to settle and shift. It is easier to install the floating walls than I thought it would be, the toughest part was the wall that went parallel to the joists. I couldn't really put sleepers since I couldn't reach the outermost joist, so the wall is entirely along one joist, and that joist is a good 8 inches from the foundation. I think fireblocking wise I understand what I need to do, every 10 feet run a vertical 2x10 to the foundation and stuff fiberglass tightly between the top plate and existing insulation/joists. I am, however, struggling conceptually with doors. The trim will cover the 2" gap around the walls, but what am I supposed to do to hide the gap in the door threshold?

Reason: Didn't specify walls are floating
