Basement framing top plate obstacles

I thought the same only use a continuous piece of heavy flashing. This would give good backing for the drywall

maybe even sliding the wall forward enough to put a 2x2 on the top of the top plate that is positioned closer to ceiling height will work too along with the L angle.

Basement framing top plate obstacles


Could I just not build the wall all the way to the ceiling in that section? Basically have the top plate just below the the pipes? Would I have attach the wall I'm framing to the block if it doesn't run all the way to the ceiling?

Well being a drywall hanger for sometime now. I get alot of these questions asked. What do you want to do about hanging drywall around this support beam,post,cables,pipes,etc..

I seen you had over head pipes to as well. Are you doing a drop ceiling, if not are you lowering the floor joists below these pipes??

Pipes on the walls. I would simply build a wall right infront of them or pipes inside the wall with top/bottom plate nailed and call it done.

If your doing a drop ceiling, you don't have to worry about having your top plate of your wall fastened up against your pipes+floor joists. Just make sure your walls can't fold in or out. Also.... make sure you have a nailer in the corner on both sides or atleast ceiling side for your drywall.. Don't depend on wall side to hold it.

I'm leaving ceiling exposed and painting it. Does that change anything? What do you mean fold in or out? I was going to do 1" xps with framing up against it
