I have a 7′ deep crawl space on the front side of the house. It is accessible with a 5×5 sliding gargage door. I am planning on converting the space to a workshop. I am going to put a concrete pad and plan to wall off the remaining crawl space. I will end up with a 12×24 foot room.
My question is how should I build the wall that separates the crawl space from the new room. I planned on putting it on the concrete pad. Do I need to pour a foundation under the wall? Also I assume I should use treated pine for the studs. Fiberglass batting with wall board on the interior would finish out the wall. Please critique this plan and provide any suggestions.
