All Concrete Block House Renovation – Exterior Wall Detail
Hey Guys. I am current;y in the midst of a full gut renovation of an all concrete block house (single wythe cmu). This house is in Northwest Ohio, so we do see some cold winters and have hot humid summers. There was never any interior framing done on the inside of the exterior walls, only plaster over block. After some time, that plaster had cracked, so wood paneling was installed directly over the walls. I am planning on hanging new drywall throughout the entire house, but need some help on the exterior wall detail. It isn’t the largest footprint, so I would like to keep the detail as slim as possible. With that being said, I am plannig on treating this pretty much the same way as I would a finished basement. No vapor barrier, layer of insulation (2″EPS) then frame out with a 2×2 wall, then hang drywall. Do you guys see any issues with this? Appreciate any feedback.
