Sheetrock Over Foundation Insulation

comments (0) September 9th, 2009 in Blogs, Project Gallery

Before applying sheetrock over foundation insulation--be it foam board or studs--apply a layer of 7/16" OSB. It's relatively inexpensive, and provides nailing for shelves, pegboard, tool hangers, etc. over the entire wall. If multiple nails or screws are needed for a heavy item, there's plenty of nailing for that to.

This can also provide extra support for kitchen cabinets, at the cost of about 1/2" interior space.
