I am wanting to finish off a portion of my basement. I have read through many different post, sites, and articles about what types of insulation and things to use. I think I have decided to use XPS/EPS foam with a normal stud wall on top.
My problem is that around the perimeter of my basement there is what appears to be a french drain system. At the base of all of the exterior walls there is a plastic 3" baseboard sort of thing. How do I deal with this in trying to frame the walls? My initial thought is to use foam thicker than the plastic cover and just have foam above the cover but is this a good idea or will this cause problems?
