The wall was built wrong because they ramset furring strips right to the block wall, screwed a second strip to the first ones, then smashed 3.5" fiberglass insulation under the drywall, which did cause moisture problems. I rerouted spouting outside the house. There will be electrical. I cant move the door because it's right at the bottom of the basement steps. And narrowing it is going to add more work than I think I really need to do. Especially since on the other side of the door the wall is textured, and they used a certain type of old barn wood that I'll never be able to match up. I'm just wondering what all could possibly go wrong if I just framed a wall using 2x2's.

Just keep the basement air from reaching the concrete wall; https://docs.google.com/viewer?a=v&q...qqQTqzkXnRJfcQ

I'm guessing downspouts. Rain gutters.

Yes. The gutters outside needed redirected.

So, I could just install 2" xps, "tapcon" some 2x4's flat against the xps every 24 inches, and be all good, right? That's 2in.(xps)+1.5in.(2x4)+.5in(drywall)=4inches. Is there any reason this wouldn't work?
