Framing around drytrack baseboard


Does anyone have suggestions on how to insulate and frame with drytrack baseboard waterproofing. The baseboard is 3" away from the block wall. Wanting to put 3/4 foam board against the wall but not sure if to put baseboard in the wall or at bottom of wall.. Thanks for any input

Most times you have to just frame the wall in for the clearance is all.

You don't want the bottom of a wall to be flexible. You also want the line to be straight. Any curve will show obviously through the base molding. I'd definitely use some kind of plate on the floor and the least working width would be 1" rip from pt lumber, predrilled and screwed into the floor. Then knotch your studs to avoid the drain system.

Do yourself one huge favor, no insulation.
Me personally I wouldn't use that type of drainage nor the one I'm showing you in the link, but since some do maybe this will give you an idea.

Thanks for the input.. I wasn't crazy about doing this either . I couldn't pour a slab on top cause can't get concrete to back of the house and they all recommend this over chipping cause of monolithic floor. Putting this in my wall is my concern now and either notching the stud around it or moving my wall out 2 in? Would notching the stud weaken the wall?

If your set on doing it that way, okay.
The walls you put up in your basement now will not be weight bearing.
Question... What's so great about the floor/slab you have now that you needed to have the drainage.? My point is, why keep adding band-aids.?
