Frame Basement Wall


I need to frame a wall under these joists, running the same direction as the joists. I need to put a blocks where I have the red line in the pics below. But, there is not enough room because of the pipes. Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance!

If I understand properly, you want to install bridging between the joists so that you have something to fasten the top plate of the wall? Yes/No?

If so, a bridge every 2 feet would be enough. Bridging doesn't need to be uniform, so if its placed randomly, that would be OK!

A 2X6 or 2X8 with a knotch cut into may work as well!

Yes, I am trying to install bridging. I'm not sure I even have 1-1/2 under the copper pipe to the bottom of the joist (see yellow line on picture below). Would I just notch the bridging as much as needed to get it to fit? I was hoping maybe there was a trick that I was missing!

The steel pipe hanger at the very top of this picture looks almost like you could screw the wall plate to it and use the pipe hanger as bridging...???

Maybe you could build the wall with its top plate low enough to clear any obstruction, then once the wall is raised into position, pack out the space between the top plate and bridging.
Its hard to verbaly describe this and my scanner is out of service at the moment.
If you aren't following me, let me know and I try again.

PS. You could notch out the end of the bridging to accommodate that copper line.
