I have a basement with half cement and half wood walls which are not even. The cement sticks out about 4 inches further than the wood wall. there are windows in between both. What is the best way to stand a wall, do i bring it out past the cement or do I make an uneven wall and put a ledge between the cement and wood?
typical Bi level home construction you have there. You have options but most times the exterior wood walls sits out flush with the outside of the concrete leaving about a 4" edge inside. When finishing the basement you will frame a wall basically as high as the concrete and create a ledge /shelf from the upper wood wall out and over the lower inside wood wall> Generally you end up with a 8"-9" ledge/shelf.
