        furring out wall with foam on it Sign In/Join 
        posted
        I have one block wall I'm thinking of just furring out instead framing 2 X 4 in front of. Will have 2" rigid insulation on it first. Reason for furring is trying to save space, need as many inches/feet as possible in this direction,... saw the crossgrid method on this old house clip,...is this method a good way to go?...they say you can run wire behind grid up or down and just notch foam to fit any boxes. Looks like I would have to drill and put in hilti screws or tapcons.
        Fortunately next week I'll be working on a more fun project. It involves cutting limes,selecting proper libation,mixer (minimal) and working on tan, then repeat. Hard part will be brushing up on Spanish on plane. Uno cerveza porfavor and what ever I learned watching Speedy Gonzalez.

        I think after the anxiety of dealing with all the house issues that a trip somewhere warm is an appropriate reward. Big Grin

        Actually I thought it was quite clever. It's not easy to adapt Poe for contemporary applications, especially something so far from his writings as football.

        So, when will the next literary masterpiece be posted? Before or after the liquid libations? Wink

        Apple schmapple, got my ace travel agent DIY Adventures (wife) who does extensive research to find exhilarating accommodations and itineraries to rival anything Shackleton or Dr. Livingston could come up with. Check out Cantamar on Cozumel as you curse bluestreak in our direction while shoveling snow.
