How to fur wall on a Concrete and Wood Wall?
 
I'm attempting to finish my basement. One unique aspect to the basement is that the garage is located in the basement. On the wall that has the garage door, there is a steel beam that runs over the garage door. This beam extends into the area that I plan the finish. The area below the beam is framed with wood studs atop a 2 foot concrete foundation. That wall extends beyond the beam and in that case it is a 9 foot concrete foundation wall.

So my question is how to fur out around this wood concrete hybrid wall. The exterior framed wall currently has batts insulation. Also how do I handle insulation? On the other interior walls I plan to use fiberglass batts with a membrane.

Thanks

I'm currently working on the other side of the basement, so I forgot I have all the junk that was stored in the basement along that wall.

The picture just shows the top. Hopefully, that's enough to give an idea of what it's like. You can see where the beam is run at the top and the pocket it sets on. Also, you should be able to see the top plate of the wall.

It looks like you could frame out a new wall over that section. Allow for the bulkhead on the left. You could use 2x3 studs. If you have to notch a few studs around beams shouldn't affect the integrity of the wall.

Does that make sense? Or am I missing something in your picture.

No that's essentially what I've been thinking. I wasn't sure if some special needed to be done. I also wasn't sure how to handle insulation.

Of course you'll have to anchor the top plate, of the framed wall, to some addition framing or backing in the joist above. (Not sure of your level of carpentry so I added this)

If it was me I would have foam insulation sprayed in after the framing. Or follow your local building codes regarding insulation. (Vapor barrier etc.)

I had my basement spray foamed and it keeps the room very dry and warm.
