Cool

I am considering two different methods of finishing my basement walls. I am used to furring out with 2x2s and rigid foam insulation and drywall. I read recently a recommendation of a fully studed 2x4 wall about 2" out from the wall and using fiberglass insulation. Both cases involved a poly barrier from on floor and up to mud line.

Thoughts?

I do about 10 basements a year. I always use a full 2x4 wall with fiberglass batts. I build my walls laying on the floor, staple my plastic on, and tilt them up. I have never had a bad wall.
