I have an unfinished basement, and I am planning to have it finished as a DIY project.

I need info as to how to get started, which would mean installing the Frames as also considering the pipes, corners etc.

After the frame is in place, I would like to dry wall it.

1st be sure you have no water problems. Then make sure the floor is level to start your sole plate (stud) Do a search on this topic. This is one of the most FAQ here. Do not attach any 2x4's or furring strips directly to the wall. 2x4 framing should be suitable to add insulation and additional electrical receptacles. If you need a powder room or even a full bath, post back and I can offer you some ideas, Tom
