Garage remodel quest- framing floor


Hello:

I am currently trying to secure a contractor to help frame up current garage floor 8" so as to have one step down from existing floor in home to new floor in garage remodel.

My question is there is roughly 3" of the sill out past the existing 2x4 stud wall, how would one go about securing say 2x8's so as to frame. I have added a picture to better illustrate.

Just thinking I guess could run 2x4's off of the sill and run out with supports??

Thanks!!

We usually want to insulate that and attach a 2x8 like that with a 2x4 on the floor with short studs.. We would usually bring that up to a more pleasing height like level with the bottom of the windows. But min would be 6 inches above the concrete wall.

Re: Garage remodel quest- framing floor


Thanks for the reply, do you mean to attach a 2x8 along side the block or on top of the sill?

Sorry I don't understand how to get by with that offset with block and Sill configured to allow a 8 inch space off of concrete pad..
