Hey, I'm a newbie to the site and have maybe a dumb question, lol. Is there anyway to put up a wall in a basement-against the cement outer wall-without using 2x4's? Is there any other option that is quicker/cheaper but still good? I thought i had seen some thin pieces of wood attached to the wall and the drywall just attached to those? The reason I ask is b/c we bought this house that was built in 1972, but for some reason they didn't put in the wall before they attached the pipes, electrical box, etc to the cement. So to build the wall with 2x4's is going to be VERY difficult b/c I will have to take all the water pipes (for washing machine) and other stuff off the cement first.
Please help me out? :o
