Re: insulating uneven wall

Thats what I thought from researching, it makes sense to me so I will finish off whatever rigid foam i have and wait for an inspection.

Another bit bites the dust lol I also had a building inspector stop by today and he wasn't sure if insulating inside with a rigid foam was a good idea.. He said might be mold issue later on, but at the end he said it should be ok. So many opinions, I hope I wont need to tear it all out in the end. lol

I drilled in basement foundation of my 60 yo house. Hammer drill used is Bosch 11255VSR and drill bits are also by Bosh

Im just starting to install rigid insulation in my basement and I noticed that my walls are uneven. The worst spot that you can see is in the picture. I put a level to show how uneven the wall came out after I put insulation. Just wondering is it ok to leave it like that and than just adjust the fra...
