Soffit/Bulkhead first or walls?


Basically, before I start framing my basement, what usally comes first? Is it just preference?

Thanks to all!

walls first so you have something to attach the soffit to.

frame the walls first and build the soffit/bulkhead to the wall framing and then fireblock in the wall where the bulkhead lands on the wall.
