Rough in Outlet Support Wood


Need to add wall frame for dry walls, should I remove those woods?

Thank you very much!

yes. But read more on basements. any wood in contact with concrete needs to be pressure treated. The walls in a below grade basement need to have a 1/2" or more air space. Foam board insulation is placed on the concrete, then an air space then the wall studs.

Thank you very much Bob,


Just got a big ripping club for the wood piece,

My house was build in 1996, builder just left the wood on the concrete, home inspector didn't say any thing about it.

A further question is, to copy the same method used on partially finished wall frame, there are #15 (HomeDepot Canada so called) black sheet. In HomeDepot they have huge roll, but my wall size is just <10m long. Any alternative? or I can simply ignore it.

Note: The wall I need to frame is a shared wall with my neighbor (Row Townhouse), but I don't know what in there. Some said there is a gap between two foundations.

Great thanks,

now you are dealing with something different. No moisture transfer is likely to occur between this wall. And no space is likely between you and the next townhouse. #15 felt will work to protect framing lumber from the concrete. It's cheap ($15) or so.
