Insulating basement false wall.


I'm refinishing a sunken basement that has a 2x4 pony wall on top of 6" concrete wall. I'm considering building a false wall in front of the exterior wall. The climate here is pretty mild, so only R12 is required.

Can I insulate only the false wall or do I have to fill the space completely? If I can get away with insulating one wall, does it matter which one?

Id say put the insulation on the inside wall as one piece paper side to the room. I would build it from the floor to the ceiling as one wallThis would be so you have a good V /B from inside to out side wall.
