If no local additions (BD or Fire Marshall) were made to your code, IL is under the IBC; http://www.reedconstructiondata.com/...odes/illinois/

Under that, fb is allowed under drywall; http://publicecodes.cyberregs.com/ic..._26_sec003.htm

He should know; ""10/13" means R-10 continuous insulated sheathing on the interior or exterior of the home or R-13 cavity insulation at the interior of the basement wall." from your state energy requirements, reboot his software- politely.... from; http://energycode.pnl.gov/EnergyCode...state=Illinois

Gary, the only way to "reboot" a Northern Illinois lifer inspector, is by accidentally dropping an envelope on their floorboard of their vehicle, or slip it on their clipboard, under the paperwork, when they are not looking.

You left out a crooked Senator in jail, two governor in a row went to jail, a crooked speaker of the house, along with a mayor up in that area went to jail.

The land of crooked inspectors and politicians, where money speaks.

FYI(not that it helps you now). There is a fire rated foam board that can not only be used, but left uncovered. Superior walls uses it on some of their modular foundations.

All - Sorry for the long delay but i fianally got around to calling back the ispector. I told him i would be willing to add 1/2" drywall fireblocking at the ceiling and he said that would work. So..... i guess that was easy.

Now- would you say this is the proper way to do drywall fireblocking?

We have our own; #21 and #22: http://www.diychatroom.com/f98/how-f...-37190/index2/

The drywall the guy used in your link will absorb moisture from the concrete wall, either add some poly there (electrical tape the edge) or use better material. http://publicecodes.cyberregs.com/ic...002_par017.htm

i ran the foam board all the way up to the floor joists, so will fire blocking even serve a purpose at that point? or should i have stopped it at the top of the foundation?

Depends on the local AHJ, some require it between the foams.... the idea is to stop the wall fire from reaching the floor joist cavities, traveling across the basement, going up a plumbing pipe hole, igniting the roof sheathing and house burning down/up at same time. IMO, the fb can burn through (quickly) without a fire-stop.
