Guys, I'm planning on laying down dricore panels in my basement, I have a few questions. I have two steel support columns that I plan on boxing out with stone vener lowers and trim molding for the uppers, do I frame these columns in first and anchor them to the concrete floor and then cut the dricore to fit around or do I install all the dricore first and then frame these in and have them sit atop the dricore?
I will also be doing the same stone veners on the end of a bar which will require me to make a pony wall, again I have the same question will it be better to anchor the 2x6 I plan on using for a bottom plate to the concrete with tapcons, frame the pony wall, and then cut the dricore to fit around or place the wall atop the dricore?
I am thinking the wall and the base would be much more stable and move less is attached to the concrete. Attached is a pic of my basement project with the two columns I speak of. Thanks in advance for any help
