Basement wall framing


Hey all,

I'm currently in the process of renovating a basement. I've already framed a wall against my foundation, and closed it off with Roxul and vapor barrier. This wall has plumbing pipes running vertically in front of it, so I will be building another wall which will be approximately 6 inches in front of the insulated wall. I'm curious to know if the insulated wall needs to be drywalled or if I need to do anything else to it before framing the wall in front of it and drywalling it. Thanks!

Why did you put Roxul in the wall that you've already framed against the foundation wall?

Because I originally wasn't planning on building a second wall.

before building new wall I'd put a layer of plywood or similar ( fireblocking) against the ceiling that butts to the front of the back wall top plate and comes out to the front edge of the new wall for draft stop. then build your wall, that would be a hard wall to firestop otherwise...

i think the drywall profiles with gypsum board as a new wall partition is a good way for you. I just know this things.

Good idea on the fireblock. I'll be sure to do this.

My question in regards to the walls though are since the wall against my foundation wall is already insulated and vapor barriers, should I put drywall overtop of it or can I just leave it the way it is and build the wall in front of it and drywall it?

There's going to be about a 2 inch gap between the two walls if that makes a difference.

Thanks!

you really only need drywall on the interior surface of the interior wall facing the room.
