I am turning part of my garage into a home office. The outside wall has a 9"x3" course of block. I want to make it look very clean. My initial thought was to frame around it and drywall it. What do you folks suggest?
That's probably tour best option (remember treated wood where it contacts concrete or block), but you end up with a "dust ledge". Is it just one wall or all the way around?? If it's just one, you could frame a new wall and eliminate the offset. You wouldn't lose that much area. All four walls would be a different story. And actually, with it being at floor level, You would probably be better off covering it with wood (1x material). Less chance of damage, too much teouble to use corner bead which will end up getting bent or knocked off at that level........
